The unfortunate reality is that I couldn't find a good way to stage the
changes. It's a wonking big set of infrastructure change. I could introduce
the security blob abstraction separately but that is a fraction of the
change. If it would have gone through mail filters as a single patch I'd
have sent it that way.

I can spend time on patch presentation, and will if necessary. As it is,
I can start getting substantive commentary from beyond the LSM crowd, who
have already been extremely cooperative and often critical.
