I don't see a performance bottleneck. Encrypted data transfer (ssh,  
ssh-fs) gets about 60% of unencrypted transfer speeds which is what I  
expect. Encrypting data means increasing the number of bits to be  
transferred and I don't see how any other encryption type could  
change that to the better.
