 > This would be nice, but it isn't something that trac supports (at least
 not well).  There are a couple plugins that attempt to do something like
 this, but they leak the tickets via emails and such and the data would end
 up in public anyway.

 That still seems like an improvement - I mean, it's all plain text at some
 point. Pidgin doesn't publish a PGP/GPG key on the security contact page,
 so I assumed that a network sniffing adversary wasn't part of your threat
