Possible memory leaks in HMac<T>

System.Security.Cryptography.HashAlgorithm has a Dispose (or equivalent Clear) method which is documented as freeing both native and managed resources.  Most uses of this call Dispose() for the .NET 4.0 code but Renci.SshNet.Security.Cryptography.HMac<T> doesn't.  Should this class have a Dispose() method (which'd be used by all its clients)?

If you think this'd be a worthwhile change, I'm happy to propose diffs for it.
