I am wondering as Trejkaz states, that this is just RC4 encryption, but it's a
different version number, which gives us 4 instead of 0-3.  I will download POI
source and see if I can just change that line of code - that type=4 just does
RC4 decryption and see if that works.  Worth at shot.  If it does, I'll post it
up here.
