You are right. If you choose to encrypt your file, you should include the
emergency before the emergency takes place. There's no miracle, we cannot
help you if the KMyMoney is not included in the file.

We recommend it, but we do not include it by default as it's a privacy
issue. It has to be a choice of the user. After all, including the key
gives the key holders access to the file (should it reach their hands).

So, the mechanism is there, should you want to use it, but no "next,
default, next, next, ok". :)
