Searching for SSH (sshd2) design documentation

Newbie to this ng.

Being hopeful/desperate, I am searching for a design document, or perhaps a
few rough diagrams of how the sshd2 code is held together.  It seems to be
heavily influenced by a STREAMS-like infrastructure and also uses some
object-oriented concepts.

I am wanting to understand a particular code path in sshunixeloop.c
(ssh_event_loop_run), where the time records are processed.  I don't have a
clear picture of why the various time records are added to the time_records
queue and am following several dead ends as I try to understand how it all
hangs together.

A few block diagrams showing the cross-layer interactions would probably
help me sort out some of the confusion I have with the code at the moment.

I think you'd have to ask -- it's their code.  IANAL, but
personally I doubt they would provide one, and if a third party did and
published it, I would not be surprised if were to threaten legal
