Just to be clear- Is that the only benefit of Truecrypt, Windows  
compatibility?  I've never used it and I'm just curious...  (perhaps I  
should *try* it)

I've been watching this thread but since we're a totally UNIX shop,  
I'm leaning towards nikolai's OpenSSL/Version-Repo answer...  A very  
UNIX-ish approach to solving the problem.  Mix it with some commit  
emails from your Version Repo of choice, or toss some more pipes into  
there, or script out more parts, and viola- the solution gains  
features very cheaply... :)
