The ezjail script includes the prompt for password when starting a jail.  It
prompts from the host console.  My backup setup is also a file backed GELI
fs mounted over sshfs.  That's a manual config outside of ezjail  One other
thing to note is that performance isn't jaw dropping to say the least, but
my setup is VM based and io speed isn't a large concern for me.  Your
performance results could easily be better than mine.
