How to unwrap a procedure that is encrypted using the wrap utility in Oracle?

How to unwrap a procedure that is encrypted using the wrap utility in Oracle?
In my previous answer to this question, I incorrectly responded that there was no known way to unencrypt a wrapped procedure. Pete Finnigan, a well-known Oracle security expert, has informed me that there have been others who have cracked the wrap utility. Please see Pete's blog entry on this subject.

If you click on the presentation link in the blog entry, you will see a lengthy description to unwrap a previously...

wrapped procedure. Thanks to Pete for his great work on this one!
