I recently made use of the dpkg-gensymbols page.  It is a hugely excellent 
resource on the topic.

Additionally, I've comitted an update he did for the clamav apparmor 
profile to the Ubuntu branch of the pkg-clamav Git repo on Alioth.  It will 
be in the next upload.  He jumped right in and learned about AppArmor 
profiles and produced a correct patch on the first try.

Definite plus 1 from me.

P.S. Currently I think only packages in Main are profiled.  You might 
consider taking on profiling some 'security challenged'  packages in 
Universe for Jaunty.
