It seems geli is the standard way of encrypting disks. It's extremely
flexible and usually recommended by the community over gbde. Moreover,
geli is mentioned a lot more in the mailing lists and forums.
gbde's man page explicitly says that gbde is experimental and should be
considered suspect. That seems reason enough to finally depreciate and
remove it in favour of geli.
The Encrypting Disk Partitions page in the Handbook discusses gbde
first, and describes geli as an alternative. This seems odd, shouldn't
this be the other way around?
Is there any objection to removing gbde? How many people use gbde? When
have you used gbde over geli, and why?
