wickr appears to be closed source, from what I read.

It's going to take a while. It is possible even upon duplication that is has the ability to self corrupt. Is there going to be an algorithm that reconstructs after destruction? I'm quite certain the NSA and such folks have legends of mathmaticians and coders working on that: image restoration alogs.... I have found a few open source "self destructing" projects, here's one you can read about [1]. For sure it is time for Gentooers to find something and at least hack an embuild/overlay for it for use to experiment around with. File a bug about needing a self destruction option in gmail, such as mxhero [2] is another hack out there.
