the best way is to start a new thread asking for UX advice where to
include the option. IMHO the Save dialogs are a no-go, the average user
will have no idea what this means.

On the other hand, Tools > Options > Load/Save > General has almost no
space to add anything else, but may be a new "Encryption" options page
is an overhead...
