However, by the time Tribler 5 is released, Chello and other ISPs may have switched to more sophisticated measures, as stated in the wiki link:

"Many ISPs are now using more sophisticated measures (e.g. pattern/timing analysis or categorizing ports based on side-channel data) to detect BitTorrent traffic. This means that even encrypted BitTorrent traffic is now throttled. However, for those using primitive methods to identify and throttle BitTorrent, the current solution remains extremely effective"

Encryption could probably be added to Tribler, but it probably won't help against throttling in the future. On the other hand, an encryption enabled client may see a performance boost not because of avoidance of throttling, but because the BT client can connect to more peers and therefore might discover better peers.
