To me client-side encryption is the one big missing feature in ownCloud. This 
would enable hosting it on an server you don't control, and still have full 
ownership and control of your data.

Of course you would lose some convenience and some features, but if it's all 
about convenience and features, and not about control of your data, then I can 
also go with Google or similar services.

Is it hard to implement such a feature? Hell yes. But that's part of the fun 
and the value.
