During the process files are encrypted. Their key is stored under
/var/lib/name, and the encrypted files themselves are stored under
/var/spool/name. The key is used to perform repeatable encryption on the
same files in the future, but the encrypted files are only used in order
to rsync to another machine for backup. The save on performance, because
if a file didn't change, it will not be re-encrypted, but they are, in
theory, reproducible from the available data.

After your explanation, the only thing I still have doubts over is
whether the files should not go into /var/cache instead.
Erm, which files?
The slight dilemma is whether /var/cache or /var/spool would be a better
choice. I'm leaning towards spool, as they tend to be big, and it would
really be better not to erase them.
