In PR 949 ("Remove “terrible hack” in t.c.ssh.filetransfer.FileTransferClient", 
trac bug 9362) I'm removing an attribute of FileTransferClient which I'm pretty 
sure was never intended to be public. Adi Roiban points out that this is 
technically a compatibility-breaking change, though, and so it needs more 
public review.

My reasoning for thinking that this will not break any user code: the 
attribute, although not prefixed with an underscore, was undocumented; anyone 
relying on it would have had to read the source code to discover what it does, 
and in the source it was commented as a "TERRIBLE HACK". I'd hope this would be 
enough of a warning. (Also, I can't think of a use for it.)
