2.0 does not support encrypting to AES-128 out of the box, it encrypts 
to RC4-128 or to AES-256. However it is prepared for AES-128, only one 
line of source code must be changed to make it the default for 128 bit 
keys. Of course, we would then get lots of requests to encrypt to 
RC4-128 (some people like weak encryption). So after the release of 2.0 
a change should be made to configure whether AES or RC4 is used for 128
