My task here was actually to get ciphering AND compression working on
the same module.  I tried your suggestion of compressing after ciphering
using a blank cipherkey and it didn't work.  This might not really be a
new task, but a bug hunt.

We might also want to try finding a way to do ciphering AFTER
compression since it should yield better compression results (although
ciphering then compressing did still shrink the size quite noticeably).
