Human readable .ssh/known_hosts?

Hi list members,

just tried to get some old records out of my known_hosts, which is 'HashKnownHosts yes'. Is there a way to unhash host names and/or IPs?
Google tells about, how to add hosts, but not the opposite, may be I miss some thing.
Is this does not work at all, is there a best practice for cleaning old hosts and keys out?

Thanks, Martin!
