Personally, I think that supporting 10 different types of setting up
crypto in the installer is insanity.  The UI will get incredibly out of
hand (not to mention the code).  Especially with the fact that luks
allows you to add things after the fact, I'd lean more towards using
that and _just_ letting people do passphrases at install time.

A real look through the patch hopefully forthcoming later today or
