Comment(by warner):

 hrm. Tell me about this "iv" argument: is it a string or an integer? I
 think I'd rather have pycryptopp be responsible for the pack-int-to-string
 and block-alignment issues.. it is more likely to get them right than I
 would.

 It would also be nice to be able to pass an offset into {{{process()}}},
 so you could create one AES object and then seek around with it (rather
 than creating a new AES object for every segment), but if that were a
 hassle I suppose I could live without it.

 What happens if my segment starts on a non-AES-blocksize boundary?

 Incidentally, I added [http://allmydata.org/trac/pycryptopp/ticket/18
 pycryptopp#18] to request this feature, having forgotten about this #266
 ticket.
