It is an interesting idea, to mount the encrypted f/s and use encfs loclly. I 
think I would use the sync option of sshfs, but it looks promising.

While I was playing, I wrote scripts to create a loop device from a file, and 
format, mount, and unmount by putting a LUKS format on the loop device. I'm not 
sure what the general utility of this might be, but it was fun playing, and I 
can use another slot on the LUKS format to allow some users read-only access. 
That's not critical for what I'm doing but might be for some future problem.

Thanks for the suggestion, it solves issues of encryption and file ownership, 
and I can create a key for authorized_hosts which will allow users to operate 
without a password to remember.
