Yes, Virginia, an encrypted object can compress (in a special case)

Not new news, but a nice delighter to discover by experiment - when the rsync command (with -z compression and -c checksum options) transfers a TrueCrypt volume to replace a prior copy, following changes to selected files within the volume, it manages to do so without resending all of the encrypted volume's data.
