Linux fragmenting at last?

Well, Crispin said last night (in the pub after a thoroughly pleasant arranged-at-the-last-minute talk on AppArmor) that submission of the kernel parts to the mainline is imminent, probably 'next month' (i.e. March given that he said this very late on Feb 28 ;) ), and that packaging the userspace parts up more conventionally is also desirable.
Anyone willing to do it? (I might well do it if nobody else can find the time.)
(One other point is that AppArmor is wonderfully easy to configure. Not only are the profiles easy to edit but you hardly ever need to edit them anyway because the automatic learning tools are so flexible.)
(As an aside, SELinux and AppArmor use the *same hooks* in the kernel, the LSM hooks, and those hooks were designed with both systems in mind from the start. So this is hardly a sign of catastrophic kernel fragmentation.)
