I'm glad we agree on this one.

Given the schedule is tight before the Wheezy freeze, I think I'll
focus on the priorities I've set when I started working on AppArmor in
Debian: https://wiki.debian.org/AppArmor

... but we now have the underlying infrastructure (dh-apparmor) in
place that allows Ubuntu to push AppArmor profiles directly into
Debian, and hence reduce the delta you're carrying :)
Perhaps this effort could benefit from the tools developed as part of
the Debian derivatives initiative.
