Sounds like a reasonable request. I don't know who owns
packages.ubuntu.com maintenance, but if you drop me a direct email, we
can talk more about how you might like to see this implemented.

Agreed! I'm working my way through the code in "man" to get this to work.
In the mean time, you can use this wrapper script:
You could click on the "download" link, and save in your ~/bin
directory, or some such, and chmod +x. Then you can run something
* dman selinux
on a machine that doesn't have selinux installed.
