Agreed, and we're trying to convince the systemd maintainers to adopt a
Debian-specific patch for keyscript support :-)  (To be fair we haven't
really tested the patch yet, AFAIK.)  In the meantime, editing your
crypttab(5) to add ‘initramfs’ to the 4th field of your device(s) forces
it to be considered for unlocking at initramfs stage.
