On the other hand, I don't think the libssh2 description is particularly
useful for a user. The uppercase acronyms aren't friendly. How about
something like this:

libssh2 is a client-side C library implementing the SSH2 protocol
with support for regular terminal, scp and SFTP sessions; port
forwarding; password, key-based and keyboard-interactive
authentication.
.
This package contains the python bindings libssh2. It is a fork and
rewrite of org.keyphrene.
