Hi All,

I have implemented the simple zip decryption in C (yes, the much loathed
weak password based classical
PKWARE encryption, which incidentally is the only one currently supported in
python) .

It performs fast, as one would expect, as compared to the current all-python

Does it sound worthy enough to create a patch for and integrate into python
