Previously: Most backup providers are PRISM-compatable.

Now: More backup providers are privacy-compatable.  Pressure is put on
other providers to follow suit, or risk losing customers, who now have
options.

Zooko: Congrats on the service.  I'm wondering if you could mention on
the site which primitives are used client-side.  All I see is that
combinations of sftp and ssl are used for data-in-flight.
