I changed my code to use the libssh logging routines. But something is
not really convenient: Logging does not work before the verbosity level
has been set. But it's set on session level, so one has to create a
session first.

But in a multi threaded application there's not always a SSH session in
the main / parent thread. So nothing can be logged until the first
session has been created... I now create a dummy session in the main
thread (only ssh_new() and ssh_options_set() to set
SSH_OPTIONS_LOG_VERBOSITY), but that's a bit uncomely.

Any idea what this could be solved in a more elegant way?
