Bug#621788: Please support encryption without separate /boot, with encryption support in current GRUB2

Package: partman-crypto
Severity: wishlist

Current GRUB2 supports directly reading encrypted partitions via
dm-crypt and LUKS.  This allows setting up an encrypted disk without a
separate unencrypted /boot partition.  Please consider supporting this
configuration in debian-installer.

(Note that at the moment such a setup requires entering the passphrase
twice: once for GRUB and once for Linux.  I've seen some discussion
about passing the passphrase from GRUB to Linux, but such support
doesn't exist yet.)
