Have been using cfs for a few years without any problems, first on linux,
now also on freebsd.
Have got an usb-stick with ext2fs-filesystem and a cfs encrypted directory.
The files can the be accessed from both linux and freebsd.
Backups are easy, just copy the encrypted files, and they can be attached
from anywhere.
