Requested by: Tim Lee (timl33)

A follow on feature to #301923. There should be a way in the YaST users
module to specify directories to make accessable in an encrypted home
directory when the user is not logged in. See bug #446317. I would
suggest an editable list of directories to exclude from the encrypted
image, with a reasonable set of defaults. Examples of directories to
exclude ~/.vacation, ~/.procmail, ~/.forward, ~/public_html and ~/.ssh

maybe if not in yast, it could be like in ubuntu a context menu in
kde/gnome over files and folders to encrypt them, like in windows too.
So while you are logged they are decrypted to you but when not they are

What's wrong with having a ~/Encrypted subdirectory? You cannot
possibly know in advance how many dot-files would need to be readable.
To be frank, there are even non-dot-files like ~/public_html that ought
to be readable.
