Ha, i'm about to break your moral.  I'm looking at moving from my own
Subversion server (mostly b/c it's become a pain to manage from behind ISP
dynamic DNS and I don't need a server running all the time) to the hosted
service at rsync.net.

Soo, there are some image and data files from old projects I no longer need
nor care about, and I have trimmed them using the svnadmin d ump and then
svndumpfilter.  I'll be using the trimmed files for my hosted content.

I'd like to come up with a good way to protect my data via encryption.
Something better than creating a Truecrypt volume and syncing that,
instead.  Which pretty much defeats the purpose but is all I have come up
with so far.
