By the way, the GPGME library supports symmetric (password-keyed, as
with 'gpg -c') encryptions [1], in addition to PGP assymetric
encryptions.

What is it good for? To remember just one password (the symmetric
password) instead of N password cached by Subversion. Otherwise it
just adds a layer of redirection...
