Partitions are a major usability nightmare IMHO. That is the reason my 
proposal focused on encfs/ecryptfs, which both are "layered" encryption 
"file systems". This removes the requirement to set a fixed size for the 
encrypted space and makes it easy to use standard tools to backup the 
encrypted data.
