I know from discussions with Manoj that it's basically just three
or four people working on it. While I am very interested in SELinux
and use it myself (but don't have much time available either,
unfortunately), I think it's *much* more important that we do meet
our release schedule and I'd thus rather see this release goal
dropped than our release delayed.

I don't want to step in the way of people who're serious about
getting it in (in addition to the 3-4 already working on it), but
I wanted to get my thoughts out.
