I think we can implement it as just another supported on-disk format but
it will need some testing images and full integration in libcryptsetup
(similar to TrueCrypt/VeraCrypt formats).

I can do that myself but I would like to have full documentation and/or
implementation of parsing of GELI on-disk format.

And it will take some time (maybe create issue for it in project tracker).

Anyway, thanks for working on this!
