Is it? Blowfish is very fast when you use it to encrypt a whole file,
but it deliberately has a high initialization cost to prevent its speed
aiding a brute force attacks against beginning of the ciphertext.
Presumably geli encrypts a sector at a time, so it's not obvious
whether Blowfish is all that fast. Do you know of any Benchmarks for
Blowfish verses AES?
