Thanks.  I think I have better suggestions. ;-)

dessh, derar, dezip, depdf, ...

where "de" is synonymous for "un", but it also means "de"crypt.


ssh2john, rar2john, zip2john, pdf2john, ...

The latter will almost guarantee no conflict with other tools going
forward, and this naming convention is quite common:

$ ls /usr/bin/ps2*
/usr/bin/ps2ascii  /usr/bin/ps2pdf    /usr/bin/ps2pdf14  /usr/bin/ps2ps
/usr/bin/ps2epsi   /usr/bin/ps2pdf12  /usr/bin/ps2pdfwr
/usr/bin/ps2frag   /usr/bin/ps2pdf13  /usr/bin/ps2pk
$ ls /usr/bin/pdf2*
/usr/bin/pdf2dsc  /usr/bin/pdf2ps
