:zz: "Re: [zigzag] encryption | Where we are


I see encryption as fairly down the line, since currently
 we have only a sketch of a system.  There are fundamental
 new things necessary, as well as lots and lots of interface
 routines, visualizations, etc.

I would prefer to see it become seriously useful before
 getting into that phase.

Of course, you could always encrypt the data set...
