Well, I don't have a problem with the temporary "vulnerability" of
the encrypt/decrypt process. After all, that would be no less secure
than the current status. My concern would be with physical theft of
the machine or "hackers" acquiring something on the level of FTP
access and snatching the files. In either of these two cases I'd
prefer to know that my resultant data is encrypted in place. Does
that make sense?
