An encrypted and/or steganographic filesystem would be much better for
your NVRAM keychain drive, because that hides your files even when you
_haven't_ deleted them.
But these are not mutually exclusive. Even if the data are encrypted,
when I delete something I want it GONE. That way even if a TLA with
resources to break the crypto steals my device, my previous password
list is safe.
