New submission from Shashank <shashank.sunny.singh at gmail.com>:

As promised in this thread http://mail.python.org/pipermail/python-dev/2009-August/091450.html (a year ago!), attached is a patch that replaces simple zip decryption logic written in pure python with that in C.

As reported in the link above, this can result in speedups up to couple of orders of magnitude.

There doesn't seem to be any need to add any new tests as this patch doesn't change any public API
