I use encfs.  Hopefully you are interested in linux, because encfs is difficult 
to use on windows or mac.

If you use encfs for a solution like this, it would be similar to this:

You have an encrypted directory, which is encfs mounted plaintext.
You specify the plaintext directory as the rdiff-backup destination.  And then 
you sync the encrypted directory online.

This does consume disk space, as multiple copies (encrypted and non-encrypted) 
get stored on your local disk.  But it works.
