I am not disagreeing with provision of an user option.  That is not what the current OOo-dev
3.4 does.  That's not what the current build attempts to do.  That's pretty damned unilateral,
Rob.  That is what I was referring to.

In a reply to Mathias, you mentioned certification of document cryptography.  Does that require
something more than declaring there is a way to use aes in an ODF Package encryption?  Perhaps
it is important to know what the certification requirements are?

I'm not arguing that we
don't support Blowfish at all.  I'm saying that we should also allow
saving with AES, as allowed by ODF, and as required by regulation for
many users.

Your use of the word "unilaterally" is rhetorical nonsense. As I said
before, I favor having option for the user to select the encryption
method to use.  We should try not to 2nd guess our users' preferences
and offer only lowest-common-denominator, one-size-fits-all solutions.
   We should try to provide configuration options for reasonable
alternatives, especially where we know different user populations will
have different preferences.
