[liberationtech] SecureGmail Chrome extension

To me, the real question is whether it protects against relevant
threat models. For example, it might not protect against an adversary
with nation-state resources or the mail provider per se (Google could
in fact subvert it via the Chrome store, for example). But it can
certainly change the cost-benefit calculation for the attacker, and
make it at least *impractical* for certain LEAs (e.g. state / local)
or against external attackers who just compromise the account.

It's a start, anyway.
