If either of these were mentioned in the automatic partitioning
process, they couldn't be understandable without being explained in so
much detail that it would be distracting.
We could add encryption to the automatic partitioning process in
future, but it would need to be a nicer sort -- with the option to use
your login password as the password, and multiple recovery keys, and
things like that.
So, please remove these checkboxes.

I have started on the LVM design in the installer specification.
As I understand it, the tasks we need to present are:
* creating an LVM volume from two or more physical volumes
* adding a physical volume to an existing LVM volume
* removing a physical volume from an LVM volume
* dismantling an LVM volume altogether.
Is that right?
