[dm-crypt] crypttab standardization

Hello,

Why does every distribution need its own solution for the /etc/crypttab format
and a parser to do useful things with it?

Is there some reason why cryptsetup doesn't itself support mounting specific
targets or at least provide some utility like "cryptmount" which can handle this
file? ... and most importantly, a manpage =)
