RC4 (e.g. ARCFOUR) in (Guile) Scheme. Yes, this is vulnerable in many ways, since it's straight up RC4.
;;; RC4, just for the hell of it.
;;; Written for Guile 2.0+
;;; Use like so:
;;; Encypher: (rc4 "Key" (map char->integer (string->list "Plaintext")))
;;; $1 = (187 243 22 232 217 64 175 10 211)
;;; Decypher: (rc4 "Key" $1)
;;; $2 = (80 108 97 105 110 116 101 120 116)
