It's probably the same method as with FreeBSD or NetBSD.  If you get

The DragonFly implementation still works; it is not the same code;
just compatible.  I'm not going to guarantee it's just fine, but it's
two different sets of code so the TrueCrypt developers taking down
their work does not invalidate the DragonFly version.

I don't know.

I can't answer that because I'm not sure what long term strategy means.

Nobody is working on it currently that I know of.
