For encryption, one could do something like encfs (perhaps over sshfs).
That's pretty cool.

There's a win for deduplication at the rdiff-backup level, though, because
you can tranfer over the wire _after_ deduplication. One could of course
rdiff-backup to a target deduplication filsystem, sync or snapshot that
filesystem, and rsync the underlying store, but that has its own
