We've discussed on the premise that we add the API for supporting ZIP encryption.
In this context, Sherman tried to implement AES encryption extending current API. 
IMHO, ZIP encryption should be implemented as extention of current ZIP API
because encryption/decryption will process for each ZIP entries.
According to Developers' Guide, guideline for adding new API is TBD. 
What should I do next?
