This introduces set_ssh_storage_backend_path() and
get_ssh_storage_backend_path(), which are wrappers around the
ssh_storage_backend siteconfig setting. Right now, these don't do a
whole lot, but they give us a standard way for extensions to set a new
backend, and eventually can let us better apply this to the environment
for rbssh (which is not planned for 3.0.x, as it's a more involved
project).

Extensions will also be able to check for the existence of these
functions in order to determine whether to set the old
settings.RBSSH_STORAGE_BACKEND or to set the new key in siteconfig.

Tested these with a patch to Power Pack.

Summary
