Sounds like a good idea.  Probably the best way to do this is to add
support to the TDE hardware library, then add a Format button and
associated dialog to both the TDE hardware manager and the removable
device Properties dialog.  The Format dialog should, at minimum:
1.) Provide a drop-down list with all supported file systems
2.) Ask at least once before actually executing the format
3.) Allow the user to gain root privileges with tdesudo

This sounds like a good enhancement bug report. :-)
