Thank you for your answer, I had found this utility during my searches, and
will probably try it. As you say, reversible + plaintext is far for optimal
from a security point of view.
Also, I would like to integrate the solution in a "packaged" distribution
like for example Zentyal or UCS.
But I'm happy to learn that this solution is viable, I wouldn't lose my
time digging in that direction
