If you setup some automounting of encrypted user home directories, then
there are two cases:
 1) user must enter some additional password/key for encrypted device
 2) user does not need additional password.

In (2) case all user private keys are accessible by evil admin, so he
can mount user's home directory.

In (1) case "evil" admin can setup keylogger etc., to log all user input
including passwords and still have access to user's files.
