[freetds] encryption question

Can FreeTDS be setup to use encryption on the data
stream? Specifically, I've got a SQL 2005 server which I'm trying to
migrate things to. SQL Server 2005 now has a cool feature whereby
you can set it to force encryption on from the server and it will
self-sign a certificate and use it to encrypt the data transmission
(i.e. not just the logins are encrypted but the entire data stream).
I'm working with the sysadmin who installed FreeTDS here and we got
it to work properly with encryption not forced on, but I'd like to
have the peace of mind of knowing that all traffic is encrypted
without installing a client certificate on every computer that will
hook into our database. After changing the setting back to force
encryption from the server, the FreeTDS connections fail.
Any pointers? If not, is this something somebody is working on?
