I still don't dare to encrypt larger files with GnuPG (they could make
a GPGDisk for such purposes, that would be ingenious move!).
An other reason is that in the process of encryption the date/time of
the file is changed (grrr...), exceptionally inconvenient for backups
(or I simply don't know the magic trick/dance).
Hence I rather use the zip with a longish nice password for such
purposes, and am besides hoping that will catch some time to see how
_TrueCrypt for Linux_ would do this work, using its encrypted
