I added such a function some weeks ago (far more simple though). Talking
with pjd, I've backed it out to use the somewhat straight-forward method
he used in rc.d/geli.

I don't have a particular feeling against your function but it uses
commands that may not be available early enough (getopt, egrep). While
it's easy to remove the getopt dependency (see rc.d/mdconfig), it's not
the case for egrep.
