Err, what?

 a) if we take that attitude to each new potential question, the we'll
    soon lose sight of the 'minimal questions during install' goal
    that was (is?) an original feature/target of Ubuntu

 b) preseed is great, but I think calling it 'easy' is , well,

The encrypted directory feature is great stuff but I really don't
think it's worth adding as a question to all server installs for it;
at least not in the default mode.
