Of course, the irony of using Gmail to store or pass nothing but encrypted information is just killing me.

GmailFS - using Gmail as a filesystem

I meant to say that with all the fuss over Gmail's scanning of content that using Gmail to pass or store encrypted information WOULD be ironic. Not that GmailFS supports encryption, which it does not. (at this time)

It isn't necessary for GmailFS to support encryption. One of the things that makes Unix so powerful is being able to layer one set of functionality on top of another. For example, you could use EncFS (freshmeat.net/projects/encfs) to provide an encrypted filesystem on top of another filesystem (including a GmailFS based filesystem).
