We actually have docs that claim this is already possible, but it is
not actually true.  There is a discrepancy between our documentation
and what is actually available on the installer - perhaps a feature
was dropped during a devel cycle but left in the documentation?  See
the following URL for where it is claimed encrypted devices can be set
up upon install in Edgy:
Version: GnuPG v1.4.5 (GNU/Linux)
