This looks very much like what is used on the gmini. Except that 0 is not common enough to exactly produce the key (some characters are invalid), however other techniques can be used.

I haven't had time yet to check if the unXORed data is compressed but I assume it is with a similar system since there is a data field who contains values approximately equal to twice the .aos file size.
I'll also take more time to reply to your post regarding legal issues as your point clearly seems a good objection to how I understood french copyright law. I haven't had time yet to contact a lawyer but I am going to prepare everything this week end in order to do in on monday as I don't want to wait eons before knowing if I can post what I've found.
