Encrypted Bazaar branches?

I had an idea for something that would be really useful. I think it
would be great if Bazaar could encrypt a repository so the revisions
can only be viewed if the user knows the private key. This would allow
Bazaar to be used as a great backup system to FTP servers. SFTP does
not solve the safe backup problem because the data is stored
unencrypted on the server and the root user of that system would
easily be able to examine the data. It could also work as a form of
access control to the Bazaar repository. When branching or pushing you
would have to enter the private key to update or view the server's branch.
How hard would that be to implement in Bazaar?
