Yes, I think so also,
I believe that the cryptoloop module in the kernel can do the same or better
then I never install loop-aes, even more, loop-aes should be prohibited
loop-aes package includes a replacement for the loop kernel module and another
losetup command, that breaks the correct working of some utilities, expecting
to found functions included into the loop module, and are not present or do
not work in the loop module of loop-aes,
in example the uloop module included in the aufs-source package.
