Robert de Vries added the comment:
The current situation is now that the decryption is part of Python. It is well
known to be computationally intensive and should therefore be implemented in C.
This patch provides that support.
The discussion if Python should support the decryption is behind us, as the
support is already in.
The only discussion should be about if there are enough users wanting this
performance improvement to add it.
