This definitively sounds interesting. Unfortunately I myself know nothing about LUKS / filesystem encryption on Linux.

Can't really say. Maybe someone else on the list can comment on this.

In any case, please fork the git repository (possibly from https://github.com/grml/grml2usb ) and work from there.

You'll have to patch grml2usb to generate the grub config stanzas you need. grml2usb should automatically pick up the grub version you've installed on the host machine, but note that it copies the grub files from /boot/grub/*.{mod,img} .
