Well, you shouldn't have to do backflips to make this work.  The parameter
file /etc/cgd/<devname> should be capable of providing this key type
automatically to fit in with the normal "auto-configure" cgdconfig startup
option (-C).

One thing I noticed just now, though, is that /etc/rc.d/cgd isn't doing a
cgdconfig -U to unconfigure at shutdown.  This should be fixed; it will
cause RAIDframe parity problems at restart if a cgd is on a raid.  (My local
/etc/rc.d fixed this, but I forgot to commit the change back to -current.)
