    Some of us don't care about C2 or "customers" or making Linux "better"
    than <other_system_name>.  We just want to make Linux better than it
    currently is at this moment in time.  The LSM patch provides a way to
    present _some_ different security models to users much easier than can
    be currently achieved, hence making the next version of Linux better
    than the previous one.
