[Thunar-dev] feedback when encrypted external storage is plugged in

i just started to deal with encrypted filesystems and am using an encrypted (using
cryptsetup) external harddrive. i read in the tutorial i followed that gnome recognizes
encrypted external storage and gives visual feedback (i.e. a passphrase-dialog) when
you plug in the storage.
however, this doesn't happen in xfce and i assumed this is due to thunar's volume
management. is this assumption correct and if yes: is there a way to use gnome's
functionality in xfce? finally: is this feature planned for xfce?

ok, i hope that was both concise and clear, thanks in advance
