Yes, and it is just because I am completely out of time (I have planned
to send some information week ago :-)

Yes, but this is just high level talk, do not expect anything useful for developers.
(It should be recorded.)

Anyway, please give me few weeks, I expect the design discussion will happen here
(I have a lot of to say why I am trying to do it this way.)
I just prefer to discuss existing proof-of-concept code that theoretic discussions.

For now, LUKS2 is experiment (partially proof-of-concept of some ideas
of configurable keyslots, partially as testbed for my university work
as implementing Argon 2 as PBKDF2 replacement etc).

(You already found one serious mistake in code, so do not use it yet :)
