It really isn't personal, you know. I don't even remember _who_ it was
that thought that pathname-based security was fundamentally wrong and was
bad-mouthing apparmor all they could. My point was just that there's a lot
of mindless "my way or the highway" in some security circles, and apparmor
really has been ridiculed.

It's not _that_ long ago that some group was trying to get rid of LSM just
because "selinux is the only valid model".
