That's still being discussed. I think it's possible that XML encryption and
decryption steps will be added to XProc, but nothing's been decided yet.

Whether they're added to the spec or not, I'd be happy to add them to
Calabash, if I could ever figure out how to use any of the XML
encryption/decryption libraries. I've tried a couple of times, for
other projects, and always been left totally stumped.

                                        Be seeing you,
