Mac OS X full-disk encryption, with Time Machine

Mac OS X full-disk encryption, with Time Machine

I know both File Vault and TrueCrypt would do this, but I also want to keep on using Time Machine to back up my files. This article seems to indicate that using File Vault means that Time Machine won't back up my files while I am signed in:

The answer now, of course, is to upgrade to OS X Lion and use FileVault 2. This handles full-disk encryption and works with Time Machine.
