Encrypted filesystems work best when the entire disc is encrypted, including 
the parition table. This would make sure any freak temp files are also 
encrypted. Some people will simply have no need, desire, or legal rights for 
this for a number of reasons. This only affects a small portion of the book, 
and would be completely optional. Some people live in countries where 
encryption is illegal, in which case they can not use any cryptography. Some 
people may only want to encrypt one file at a time, and/or just the swap 
space. The admin can choose what is best for their situation.
