Automount encrypted sdcard with key file

Today I got an uSD card for my XA2 with SF 3.0.1. Formatting with encryption and unlocking with mount works without issues. However it's rather painful to remember to manually unlock and mount the SD card after reboot. Especially automatically started services and apps won't find the external memory at boot time.

On a desktop PC I have a key file in my rootfs or home partition and unlock (luks-)encrypted partitions automatically with that key file. Is there an option in SF3 as well?
