Rats.  So if I want traffic to some port encrypted, I will need to
encrypt _every_thing?  Isn't that, uhm, suboptimal?  Suppose I want to
perform backups using encryption, but still function as a webserver (as
an example) and allow not encrypted traffic...

Am I not understanding something correctly?  It seems to me this should
not only be possible, but also very simple.
