Wishlist: Add .Private Support

Bug Description

Please provide support to sync the ecyptfs .Private Folder (encrypted version of files in Private)
And/or allow the whole Ubuntu One folder to be encrypted with ecryptfs. Possibly allowing the user to control whether or not to allow access through the web interface by uploading a passcode to decrypt it.

I believe a lot of people value privacy above the comfort of a web interface.
Don't get me wrong - this is not as much about trust, then it is about security and privacy of the files handled by Ubuntu One.

Hi Team,
My feature request is also similar to this feature. I don't want to keep plan data in my PC which is importent. So I use to put into a encrypted folder like myprivate. When I need to extract the data I use to mount it manually and use the data and unmount it when not needed.

I did the same in Ubuntu One folder and create a encrypted directory test. Now on ubuntu web site it use to keep encrypted files and use to update every mount and unmount.

I need a kind of system in which I can mount and unmount encrypted folder and that update realtime to ubuntu one when mounted not when it us unmounted.
