SE-Linux support would be good.

In answer to your question in the bug report, currently SE-Linux users
install a patched coreutils (as well as shadow (login), cron, ssh,
devfsd, logrotate, fcron, stat, procps, and psmisc) from Russell's
archive (unstable) or my archive (stable). A modified version of dpkg
is also required, it runs a script after dpkg installs a package that
updates the file labels for the new files in the package.

I gather though you don't like the quality of the existing patch
(I haven't checked it myself)?

Also I don't think SE-Linux will compile under *all* architectures yet
which is also a big problem.
