Thanks for the detailed explanation, Max!  Finally I understood how
it works :-)

BTW: I tried crypted root (with /boot on separate partition) and it
seems to work OK.  Is this already supported or have I just not seen
the problems yet?

One more interesting improvement would be to put /boot onto an USB
stick.  Are there any problems to expect with such a setup?  For
example, one might (accidentally) run "apt-get upgrade" without
mounted /boot partition.
