There's something in the test suite that already does this, so

  $ make && make -C test-data check

should produce test-data/phony-guests/fedora-luks.img (see
test-data/phony-guests/make-fedora-img.pl for how).

This image can be opened:

  $ guestfish --ro -a test-data/phony-guests/fedora-luks.img -i 

  Enter key or passphrase ("/dev/sda2"): FEDORA

  Welcome to guestfish, the guest filesystem shell for
  editing virtual machine filesystems and disk images.

  Type: ‘help’ for help on commands
        ‘man’ to read the manual
        ‘quit’ to quit the shell

  Operating system: Fedora release 14 (Phony)
  /dev/VG/Root mounted on /
  /dev/sda1 mounted on /boot

... cryptsetup cannot create a new BitLocker disk, which is rather
unfortunate.  I created a BitLocker disk using Windows, and I'll
privately send you a link, but because of the cryptsetup problem
there's no way to automate this kind of test.
