Apparently 2.6 has some good support for crypto devices, and pretty 
decent speed. Encryption won't help much with offsite disks, as the 
other computer would still have access to the unencrypted data. You 
could ofcourse encrypt the entire device and send it over, however 
because of avalanching, rsync probably would end up copying the 
complete  image over again, even if just one file changed.
