Re: Developers suck, they’re going to leak information anyhow due to
simple error, so transport-level encryption is useless

What I actually wrote is that transport encryption makes the authors of
such mistakes effectively unaccountable to users. A transport that can be
inspected has the same positive properties as open-source code (and people
do inspect weird behaviour when they can)
