That was where I was going next.  I think hooking into LSM is a good idea;
you're using them for what they were meant for, and it's a good way of
keeping things more grounded in a formalized method of adding a security
infrastructure.  If the LSM folks keep things straight, then its a win-win
situation for everyone (at least, in the long term).

I would guess that it won't take as long as 2.4, simply because of the LSM
base.  So, unless LSM is poorly documented, it should be smooth sailing.
