PECL's ssh2 supports a variety of universally accepted ciphers, including CTR ciphers.

PHP's ssh2_connect function, however, limits the ciphers able to be send to a lot of out-dated ciphers (CBC).

Please expand this. We are receiving customer complaints due to them having to keep available these deprecated ciphers to accommodate our connection attempts.

ssh2_connect() supports whatever methods are supported by
libssh2[1].  The documentation of ssh2_connect()[2] already
mentions this, but it would make sense to update the list
