    Not really ;)

    Your points can be simplified to "I don't use cryptoloop, but someone else
    might" and "we shouldn't do this in a stable kernel".

    Well, I want to hear from "someone else". If removing cryptoloop will
    irritate five people, well, sorry. If it's 5,000 people, well maybe not.


    Yes, I buy the "stable kernel" principle, but here we have an example where
    it conflicts with the advancement of the kernel, and we need to make a
    judgement call.


    Actually, my most serious concern with cryptoloop is the claim that it is
    insufficiently secure. If this is true then we'd be better off removing
    the feature altogether rather than (mis)leading our users into thinking
    that their data is secure.
