Thanks, Erik, for all your work. Revelation is a nice tool.
1. My main concern with something like Revelation (other than strength
of cryptography of the encrypted file) is having *all* your passwords,
in the clear, in memory, when you've unlocked Revelation. One solution
would be to have more than one Revelation and password file, but I
wonder if it's more elegant, and simple enough to do, to have an
optional separate layer of encryption on selected folders, so you can
put, say, your banking passwords in there. It might even have a
separate timeout before it locks and purges memory.
2. Not directly related to encryption, but I'll throw it in: can we have
custom fields, or be able to define our own templates? To be able to
store things like the additional security questions ("what's your
Mother's maiden name?") and answers, or a customer number along side
your account number, or the phone number for the help desk for your
bank, etc etc. This might take Rvl to be more of a PIM, but that might
not be a bad thing. This will have a big impact on your XML schema :-)
