I know -- one could put all that stuff in the initrd, but I prefer a
special case for the root device being the only one dealt with in the
initrd rather in the normal initscripts so that configuration (which
real device gets mapped to what dm device, cipher to be used, key
length, ...) is on /etc were possible and _not_ hidden in the initrd.

Or what were you referring to? ;-)
