Sorry if this subject has been hashed and rehashed again, but I was wondering
which Gentoo partition encryption scheme is considered the best, in terms of:

1. Security
2. Ease of setup and use
3. Number and type of ciphers available

This question is inspired by my current use of loop-AES on my home directories,
and my desire to encrypt my whole filesystem - except for a boot loader partition.

Regards,
Chris
