The commit also added bad_blowfish.h and bad_blowfish_plug.c, without
any explanation what's bad about it.
Does KWallet use an incorrect blowfish implementation? Does "bad" mean
that it is just a Q&D implementation with poor performance? No idea.

But it looks like we now have 4 copies of the same thing:

May be this is indeed necessary, but I have no idea why.
