It seems pretty clear that, with the current tools available, there is no way to do this (at least with git). There's nothing in principle difficult about it, just that (say) git+signify hasn't been implemented.

I'm getting the strong sense (see also my toplevel comment, and maybe someone will correct me and/or put me in my place) that there's an enormous disconnect between the open source + unix + hobbyist + CLI development communities, and the crypto community. The former set has almost no idea what the state of art in crypto is, and the latter (somewhat justifiably) has bigger fish to fry, like trying to make it so that non-command-line-using journalists have functional encryption that they can use.

I think this is a sociological problem, not a technical "using command-line tools makes Doing Crypto Right impossible".
