Hehe that's great. At least I am certain that you and I are on the same 
page now.  I thought from my very quick glance at truecrypt that it 
could encrypt individual files also but I have not had a hard look and 
so no definite answer there from me.

I know there are many many solutions to encryption and it would be nice 
to have a mechanism to install and use whatever the user wanted to setup 
and configure.

Say gpg provider where you specify your keyring..
Or Encryptfs, truecrypt, LUKS, name your encryption method, whatever and 
handle the technical issues only once at install/config time maybe with 
recommended parameters based on the device and expected use or 
something. /shrug.

Your ahead of me on looking at the code.
