this is really cool! I can imagine that to be part of some
shadow-USB-stick you might use when you have completely dived under, go
into an internet-café, plug it in, boot from the encrypted medium and
send anonymous files to someone using a temporary e-mail-address.
Really nice!

I would put it into one command, though. Yeah I know, the
Unix-principle says otherwise, but in this case, I like the name "tec"
and you could design it comparably to how the git-command is made with
argv[1]-subcommands, while "tec" itself gives you a list of options,
which is especially welcome for tools which you might not use that
often. In my opinion, tec is definitely a tool you wouldn't use too
often interactively.

With best regards
