I see.  My bad, I thought the leading tabs were spaces.

I'll wait for Jonas' opinion on bypassing /etc/fstab in a FS-specific
manner.  In the meantime I'm decreasing the severity to wishlist since
adding ‘initramfs’ to the 4th field of the crypttab(5) entry of each
underlying device is enough to provide root FS encryption for arbitrary
file systems (assuming the initrd can mount it).
