You misunderstand me. If you could add support to anaconda to install to
a encrypted physical volume, tidy any patch of yours, and submit it
upstream, more users will benefit. :)

Also, I misunderstood your webpage. As it mentions "encrypting the root
filesystem" repeatedly, I assumed you encrypted single logical volumes,
not the whole physical volume. Encrypting the PV makes it more
interesting.
