Why we continue hiding partitions with HAL policy

My policy has always been that if a user is able to boot a system with a
live-cd then all security is void.
Wouldn't filesystem encryption make this not quite true?

To a degree, yes, but I think I can count all the fedora users of
encrypted root on one hand... :-)

Really? I would guess it would be more than that. We include more than one method for doing this including dm-crypt and encfs.

Hopefully this feature gets into Fedora 8
