Sounds sane, except for the encrypted stuff this resembles my setup,
20Gb is more then enough (I personally have something like 7Gb used from
the max 24Gb for base (about half of it in the /usr/local/ hierarchy)).

On the last reinstall of a machine (debinstaller for x86) a couple of
months ago I tried the encypted LVM stuff but it didn't appear to work
out of the box (and I was to lame to spend some time to get is working)

Encrypted swap with a new generated key (never stored) for each reboot
sound interesting. Could you share your experiences if you have this


 When you do things right, people won't be sure you've done anything at all.
