Unless I'm misinterpreting your intentions, you want to plug a  
potential problem on the server side (prying eyes of an administrator,  
or a compromised/hacked server) through a client-side solution? I  
might be wrong, but my gut feeling is that you're trying to fix your  
potential problem at the wrong end.
