Calling sslctxfun when shutting down an SSL connection

The CURLOPT_SSL_CTX_FUNCTION option enables the daring ones to control
openssl at a fine-grained level during the setup process. What is missing
though is the notification when the SSL_CTX object is about to be freed, to
enable related (though application specific) resource deallocation. My
question is, whether you see this as a relevant issue and will such a change
(a pretty straight forward one actually) can find its way into the next curl
version. If the answer is yes, I'll gladly contribute it.
