Hello Peter,

Just pointing out that Conversations does encrypt the file before
uploading it to the HTTP server in a way that matches the encryption
being used in the current chat.  This keeps the trust in the HTTP server
the exact same as the trust in the XMPP server.

For example in a XEP-0027 OpenPGP chat, if you upload private.jpg,
private.jpg.pgp is uploaded to the server and the receiving client
downloads/decrypts/displays it.

Thanks,
Travis
