Is this is in response to my message from about a week ago about a
different backup utility somewhat like rdiff-backup that would do
encryption?  Or do you have in mind a way to add encryption directly
to rdiff-backup?

Good catch, thanks.  I've fixed it at my end and will include in
0.9.5.  Also, note that the --terminal-verbosity value defaults to the
-v/--verbosity value, so no need to set them both to the same thing
(but no reason not either).

The --include option only takes one argument.  If you use a wildcard
you have to make sure it doesn't get expanded by the shell.
