Debian's initramfs knows how to do this; d-i can even set it up for you
automatically. (My rootfs is in LVM over an encrypted partition; I believe
putting the stacking the other way round, so you have one or more encrypted
LVs in otherwise-unencrypted LVM, also works.)
Of course, if you decide to replace Debian's kernel/initramfs infrastructure,
the down side of that is that you get to replace Debian's kernel/initramfs
