I took out some debugging scaffolding so you can check it out. One of the
unit tests fails but it should since it's trying to read an archive with an
encrypted CD. (I haven't gotten around to wrapping it with an exception
handler that fails if an exception isn't thrown.)

Theoretically you can do a pull request. I think.
