FYI, it looks like some folks at Tresys did work on SELinux support in
Ubuntu hardy (their next "long term support" release). You thus might want
to check out the Ubuntu diff (assuming upstream packages are in sync) for
possible improvements.


Ideally, you might also convince the Tresys people to work directly on
Debian so that both Ubuntu and Debian benefit from their work. :-)
