You know, I forgot all about this option.
My Debian's vim supports the -x flag for encrypting/decrypting files.
Even though the /usr/src/usr.bin/vi/docs/USD.dic/exref/ex.rm document
mentions an -x flag, the actual /usr/src/usr.bin/vi/common/main.c file
doesn't support it -- getopt is called with "c:D:eFlRrSsT:t:vw:" or
"c:eFlRrSst:vw:" (depending on debugging).
It looks like the newer nvi vi we use doesn't support -x encryption any
