Please add support for host keys hashed? with ecdsa-sha2-nistp256.

When I do a ssh user@localhost on my openSuSE 12.1 box and trust the host, the entry in the ~/.ssh/known_hosts file looks like:
|1|uMRj4MI3SEWPTtQfK2PBDbc3KRM=|0JO3FUy67eeKiiWotrnY3A/DNT8= ecdsa-sha2-nistp256 AAAAE2Vj...
and JSch is unable to detect that the host key for user@localhost is already accepted
ssh -V
OpenSSH_5.8p1, OpenSSL 1.0.0d 8 Feb 2011

    ecdsa support would be jast awesome. Linux distros are moving towards ecdsa and we had to downgrade server hostkeys ro rsa to be able to make our distributions based on jsch....

    Why hasn't anything been done on this feature request that's now over 2 years old?

    https://github.com/vngx/vngx-jsch has some more stuff. I might contribute ECDSA signature support there since there doesn't appear to be a repository here to write patches against.
