Public bug reported:

Apparently there is no built-in function in k3b to burn an encrypted
data cd/dvd.

As encryption becomes more and more important, I think we should at
least give people the option to create an encrypted cd/dvd.

I would like an option to create an encrypted cd/dvd, when I use k3b for
burning creating a backup.

Okay, I can create a loop back device and encrypt it with dm-crypt, but
most regular users cannot do this as it involves knowledge of how to
create an empty large file with dd, use cryptsetup to set up LUKS, mount
loop back devices, and so on.

I use Kubuntu 9.04 and I am not aware if the Ubuntu equivalent of k3b
has this feature. If it don't, I think it should have it as well.

I hope you agree.
