The solution is getting opensuse updated to the new tools, there have
been some packaging issues, but jeffm has fixed some of those and steve
has also done some work at improving the packaging.

You should be able to use the apparmor 2.5 tools, as they are backwards
compatible with 2.3, and you will see some nice improvements.  Policy
compilation is faster and produces, smaller policy and if you take
the steps to setup a policy cache, policy loading is very fast,
