    IIRC, the whole question of whether to include the sample modules 
    (SELinux, partial Open Wall, etc.) when we submit the LSM patch is still 
    unresolved. Clearly if we do include them, we need to prominently state 
    that a lot of the bulk is sample modules, and that they can be submitted 
    separately if people would rather they be packaged separately. It is not 
    really a fundamental issue, and we just have to make sure that no one 
    interprets it as a fundamental issue.
