Full Disk Encryption for Mac is slowing me down

I finally got my hands on a full license for Full Disk Encryption for Mac, and I installed it tonight. In fact, my machine is encrypting right now as I write this post. On Windows machines, the encryption process (prot_srv) throttles itself if someone is using the computer. That is why you can deliver a computer to an end user without waiting for the encryption to end.

Unfortunately, that doesn't seem to be the case on the Mac product. I'm really feeling the pain right now. Hopefully it will be done encrypting by morning.
