I wouldn't mind removing the warning. No very strong feelings about
this to be honest. I mostly favor warning about this as I don't feel
very confident about our own cryptsetup code and would sleep much
better at night if people didn't use it (mostly due to lack of
testing). This is similar to what we did with the networking code.

Anyone else have any opinions on this?
