    Oh, goodie.

    So it's using a decent crypto algorithm, and then saving your key in
    near-plain-text on the device for you.

    Stunningly helpful. For those that wanted to read your files...

    Trying  to be happy  is like trying to build   a machine for which the
    only specification is that it should run noiselessly.
