Fair enough. I forward-ported the old rules generators to the current
202 package. I tested it in a VM and my workstation, with wifi and
eth, with and without pre-existing rules. I updated my PPA package,
202-0ubuntu5pitti6 now.

I heard positive feedback from 5 people, and no regression reports so
far, so I'll upload this to saucy next Tuesday (I want to avoid a
Friday upload). I'd still appreciate if someone with an existing LVM
or/and cryptsetup could double-check this.
