Use GPG and keychain to store the key.

I've written a little widget that lets you "encrypt" a file using
another file as the "key"; I put those things in quotes because 
it's a dumb little thing that does a quick-and-simple xor of the
first file against the other. I realize that this is barely 
something you'd call encryption, but it might fill your needs.

It's called xork and it comes with no warranty whatsoever. 


If anyone who is smarter than I am would like to suggest anything,
I'd be glad to hear it.
