Default Bug#515294: cryptsetup: Configurable passphrase prompt

I'm unsure what to do about that bug. Maybe the initramfs maintainers
have a suggestion?

either the cryptroot-hook modifies the prompt in cryptroot-script
according to an environment variable at mkinitramfs time.

or a configuration file is added to the initramfs, which the
cryptroot-script includes in order to set the prompt.

question to the initramfs maintainers: are the environment variables
from /usr/share/initramfs-tools/conf-hooks.d/* available to the
initramfs hook scripts? It seems to me that this is not the case.

and the second question: initramfs doesn't have support for translated
strings yet, does it?
