[TxMt] GPG en-/decryption

how about use the AES encrypt/decrypt Text bundle actions, and bind  
the encrypt action to cmd-S for a certain type of text-files (let's  
say with .sec extension)? Not as automatic, but I guess you could  
modify the commands a bit and have the AES decryption module store  
the password in a temporary global variable, and have the encryption  
command triggered by cmd-S use that password...

So u open the .sec file, hit a key combination to decrypt it, and  
when u save it (using cmd-S) it encrypts using the same pass, saves,  
and u have to decrypt it again before using it (could also use the  
same pass if it exists..?)

That's as smooth as I can get it, at least in theory... maybe someone  
cares to elaborate a bit? Keeping a plain text file would be easier  
than managing an encrypted disk image, but I'm not sure how easily  
the global variable could be accessed...
