      Description

      The Sorter encrypts the temporary files in dbpath/_tmp using a key that is not guaranteed to remain stable across process restarts. If it is feasible to use a persistent key to encrypt these temporary files, it would allow us to re-use these temporary files during the recovery process at startup.
