Encrypt database

Issue #258 wontfix

I see that s3ql created file ~/.s3ql/*.db which is plaintext sqlite3 database. An attacker can read filenames from it, which is not great. Can you keep all local files encrypted, please?

    Thanks for the suggestion! However, S3QL's encryption feature is designed to protect data in the cloud, not to protect from a local attacker. A local attacker has many options, so just encrypting the database wouldn't make sense.
