Some utilities for encrypting and decrypting binary fields might make a 
useful contrib module, but I see no compelling reason to add this to the 
core at this point.  If such a contrib module becomes widely used, and 
it becomes clear that it would work better if more tightly integrated, 
then perhaps we could move it into the core.

So, Victor, do you think this functionality could be reasonably packaged 
as an add-on package to Lucene?  If so, it would be much easier to get 
it included in Lucene as a contrib module.
