Right, and I'm talking about LUKS UUIDs. Neither nash nor blkid know about
those atm. and this makes it difficult to find the partition with the right LUKS UUID.
My patch adds probing for LUKS encrypted partitions to libblkid and nash can
use that to find the correct partition as it already does with normal (non-LUKS)
