Hi Thomas,

Thank you for your reply. The proposal is a bit of a work-a-round  for my
other issue. At the moment, I'm still unable to generate the
RAID1+CRYPT+LVM configuration I am after with setup-storage (see other
emails). Feel free NOT to apply the patch.

With the output from '-C', I can save the commands, review them, and edit
the output to include the cryptsetup commands that I'm missing, then run
the resulting script.

I could possibly even automate this process with a perl script, but I'd
rather not. I might as well just use the dry-run output.

Another couple of reasons that a '-C' type output might be useful.
- Save storage configuration commands for audit and review purposes.
- Regression testing in development environment. (1/2 a reason, the dry-run
output would also work in this case)
- Create storage configuration  bash scripts that can be run in other
environments without FAI. (Debian/Ubuntu have setup storage in its own
package, and I'm finding this better to use than any of the other
partitioning tools.)
