Whiteboard

Maybe this could work through per-folder-encryption.

- Right click on a folder "Protect folder"
- user has to provide password
- folder gets encrypted and mounted through dm-crypt
- the folder gets unmounted as soon a the session ends
- next time the user tries to open the folder, the password is fetched from the keychain.
