I suppose I could install TrueCrypt (other suggestions or comments
on TrueVault?), but I prefer to minimize the amount of extra
software I have to maintain.

Hi Steven

You can just use encrypted disk images, which is IIRC what FileVault

In Disk Utility -> New Image, select size, properties and encryption
type (AES 128 or 256) and Create.

Then mount and use your encrypted disks as needed.
