After looking into this in more detail yesterday and today I tend to
agree. Although there is some confinement dropping privileges only a
small set is used by default and we don't have a apparmor policy in
place for wheezy either. 

I've marked this as no-dsa in wheezy (hope that's o.k.) but am happy to
revisit this if others disagre#e.

(cc'ing the lts list since we provided a patch for Squeeze)
