April's _Linux Journal_ has an article on afio, an archiver whose
natural behavior is to encrypt and compress on a per-file basis
as part of a pipe.    Furthermore, it will write to remote locations
using rsh/rsync and maybe ssh (can't remember).   The article doesn't
appear to be available on-line, but by reading the afio man page, you
should be able to figure it out.

Sorry if someone has already mentioned afio in this thread; I think I
may have missed a couple of messages.

If you can't be part of the solution, at least be part of the spectacle.
