Having any sort of configuration will just pile up and pile up. You

it is best to be able to have a solid core. Without a clear focus like
TDE has, it's easy to get lost. The are many different use cases and
using a single product for all would result in an a giant bloated
piece of software, without it being remarkable. By having one focus,
we can continue to perfect and improve that, and put our resources to
