 encrypt swap by default

Hi Mark

I was interested in some of your BSD results. From what I remember of
the freebsd install it left all disk layout issues to the person
installing. Admittedly that was a few releases ago (6 branch mainly).
Has the install changed that much that it now recommends a disk
layout?

Thanks and kind regards
Feighen
