I'm not sure if anyone has mentioned this, but one feature I'd like to see is
the ability to hit a keystroke and have the current outline entry encrypted or
decrypted.  allout.el does this now (although I find the implementation
somewhat horrendous).

Would others like to see this?  How would you like it to work?

I currently encrypt a lot of my org files with gpg symmetric encryption using http://www.easypg.org/. I open the file as if it were a normal file and emacs asks me the password. With a mode line at the start of the file org mode comes up fine.

I think it would be useful to be able to encrypt individual sections of an org file, but I wonder how easily I would be able to unencrypt those sections if org-mode weren't available. Right now I can easily unencrypt the org files just using gpg, but if only a section is encrypted, am I going to have to do some hacking to get that section unencrypted without org-mode?

Good idea,
