Just not gonna happen. I just don't have that kind of trust.


That's the thing about encryption, you don't need trust.
The chances that your cloud provider will take so much interest in you that they will use all their computing power to break into your (hopefully Twofish or AES) encrypted password database is minuscule.
Even if they do you'll probably have changed all the passwords by the time they actually manage to brute-force it.
