DragonFlyBSD and Disk Encryption

FreeBSD 5 has gbde and NetBSD has cgd, but I am not very happy with
either OS for the same reasons that some of you would rather spend
their time contributing to DragonFlyBSD than any other OS, so I
would like to know what is planned in terms of similar encryption
mechanisms for DragonFlyBSD?

Has VFS code been revamped to the point where a GEOM compatible API
could be put in place and gbde ported?

Also, I read that Ted Unangst was working on a "userland disk" for
OpenBSD, which was planned to be able to communicate with GEOM-gate.
Any word on that?
