1. why use duplicity if you neither need encryption nor uploading to remote storage?
I use it mainly for ease of making incremental backups of my computer's main drive. Much like OSX users use their time machine thingy. Think poor man's VCS of (most of) the PC's hard-disk.
2. even mobile harddrives are lost, stolen or eventually discarded. all in all a good reason to encrypt.
True, but the external drive is stationary right next to my PC. (Of course, when the house burns down, both are lost. The backup is not used for data safety in this scenario, see above.)

That's the reason, why the ever-increasing cache folder is something I'd love to get rid of. (When I use duplicity to encrypt and back-up data to cloud storage, this is of course not the case.)
