Ok, makes sense. I can totally live with ConsoleKit for now, just wanted
to make sure that you developer know about these "issues". Kind of
stupid from me to assume that you do not ;).

I'm following arch-projects now, although I'm not using crypttab with
this system, I'm using it with another one. So probably this will affect me.

Thanks for your fast and competent reply. Thanks to all the others who
