To that point, projects like Chef have made use of encrypted secrets
since more or less the dawn of time, but not at all in a portable way.
Continuing the work to bring secrets under a single focus is something

no matter what. At the strategic level, working to ensure the
disparate efforts are in alignment is where I would gravitate to.
