[zfs-discuss] ZFS on LUKS: actually bad?

In Aaron Toponce's excellent articles he asserts that using ZFS on LUKS
effectively cripples ZFS.

However, he doesn't give a convincing explanation, and there's some discord
in the comments. My personal suspicion is that he's not correct, barring
bugs in LUKS.

So, ZFS on Linux people, what's the current wisdom? Is running a
ZFS-LUKS-hardware stack a bad idea?
