Subject Re: Encrypted Fields

It's been pointed out to me that you don't need a separate version column.
More than likely you'll be encoding the encrypted value, and you can
prefix that value with the version.

For example, ':' is not a valid Base64 character, so the encryption
string could just be prefixed with the key version if you encode in
Base64.
