I quote from Gregory P. Smith (msg91897):

"""
The decryption provided by the zipfile module is for the worthless
32-bit crc based "encryption" of zipfiles.  I think promoting the use of
that is a bad idea.

zipfile can be used by people to get their data out of such files.  We
should not encourage them to put it and/or their code into such a stupid
format.
"""

I think that the effort required for speedup of this almost useless feature is excessive.

If someone want to implement the "strong encryption" for zip files - welcome.
