In a thread on advocacy there was talk about the challenges on some
rather strict borders.

There are reasons, why it may be advised to hide or "store away" data.
Customer Information on Laptops. i.E.

and ... PostgreSQL data is open accessable as soon as somebody has
physical access to the hard drive.

TrueCrypt is really amazing ... and now to my question: who has
experience of PostgreSQL database files on TrueCrypt volumes? Speed?
Reliability (additional layers between database and harddrive are
allways challenging)
