I've been running it on my laptop for everything but / for a number
of months now and haven't had any problems with it. It doesn't
even affect my performance as much as I'd imagined that it would.
I'm planning on overhauling the structure of the parameters files
soon, but I shall be providing backwards compatibility. I may need
to change the structure of /etc/cgd/cgd.conf in a way that
doesn't provide backwards compat, but if I do that it will be a
trivial change and I'll send everyone a heads-up before I do it.
 right now the file is similar to ccd.conf(4), each line
consists of 2 or 3 tokens and I'm thinking of adding another
token ``pass'' which will be the pass at which the device
is configured. This will enable me to break up the
configuration of cgd's in /etc/rc.d into multiple stages,
in case you are retrieving your keys from either another
filesystem (think USB umass(4) dongle) or the network.
