Please consider that position vacant! ;)

I've no idea when I manage to get it (AEAD in enc) done, if at all.

While I was at it (allowing wrap/unwrap mode), I finally decided to remedy
some unnecessary restrictions of the 'enc' command.

The general idea is to allow to decrypt a file using the original passphrase
even when it is not internally salted (hence produced by another software),
in which case the salt must be supplied as an argument (along with the same
iteration count). I also added support for PKCS5 v2.
The previous behavior of the command is not modified.

I didn't work on the AEAD ciphers problem as I know someone else applied for
this job.
