I open palimpsest, select an encrypted partition, I see the option to "unlock" the volume... what's the point of that?

The interesting option is to *mount* the partition, and that's not anywhere.

Palimpsest is doing the right thing by presenting this interface. FYI partition with the LUKS data on could contain a host of other things (swap, LVM PV, RAID member, etc.) that cannot even be mounted. That's why you need to unlock and then you can do whatever you want with the cleartext device.

Ok, first unlock, then mount... where's the option to mount?

Just select the unlocked object in the user interface and press the Mount button. Like here

 http://people.freedesktop.org/~david/palimpsest-newui-luks2.png

only this shows an Unmount button because the filesystem is already mounted (if unmounted, that button turns into a Mount button).

Ahh, I didn't notice it was split in two.

However, if the file-system has no label, shouldn't it pick the volume name?
