Well, the Grsec people are animate that their rbac is just as good, or better, 
than selinux. I honestly don't know either way. But ya, supporting both would 
be pretty bad. It wouldn't just add to complexity and problems, it would 
multiply them.

But anyway. I think the current svn is ready to become 0.2-pre1. The patches 
just need to be put in place when there's time. My testbox is slowly building 
Glibc chapter5 now (for the passed 12 hours).
