LUKS bash script implements two-factor security

I've written a script in bash that automates the use of LUKS, but more importantly exports the password to a GPG'd armorfile for transport. This script implements as close to true two-factor security as LUKS can get.

The script was originally written to create armourfiles that can be burned to CD/DVD, but was retrofitted to include devices (partitions, USB drives, etc).

The script has been reviewed by peers and has undergone stress testing - file system integrity has been closely evaluated under heavy use (that's what screwed me with BestCrypt and the like - corrupt files!). I absolutely welcome further review and any comments.
Projects section, 'Military-Grade Cryptofile'

Thank you!

Thank you!
