encryption - what exactly is encrypted?

hi there:

i set up a coda client this weekend, accessed the testserver at cmu, and
am very impressed. 

after going through the setup docs and security paper on the coda web
site, i still do not understand if communications beyond the initial
authentication is encrypted.

the security writeup ``Coda Authentication and Protection'', linked as
``Notes and explanations about Coda securtiy.'' was interesting but
still didn't make it clear whether coda is encrypting all communications
or if the references to encryption in coda apply to the authentication
process only.

if anyone on the list has a better clue than me, please share!
