You could encrypt the documents before commiting them into the repository, but that would
eliminate the benefit of storing deltas and being able to perform comparisons between revisions
even for authorized users.

For file-level encryption, I would recommend something like GnuPG. You would need to build
into your workflow the encryption/decryption steps from within your working copies. It will
be cumbersome at best.
