Use an encrypted partition/HD to house the BPC pool|cpool.

This would be ZE wise (and first) thing to do; think about little
inconveniences that will happen one day or another to your work building:
fire, lightning strike, flooding, gas (or bomb) explosion, dragon attack,
rabid customer, and worse of all: a mad Craig Barratt attack (well,
he's already mad, so it's not a matter of "if" but really a matter of

It will also give you the main benefit of rsync by tunneling only
what's necessary (only your first backup will take more time.)

Think about the whole pool size and the time needed to tunnel it
