We had two big _fundamental_ problems this merge window:

- untested code that clearly didn't do what it claimed it did, and
which caused me to not even accept the main pull request

- apparmor code that had a regression, where it took three weeks for
that regression to be escalated to me simply because the developer was
denying the regression.

Tell me why I *shouldn't* be unhappy with the security layer?

I shouldn't be in the situation where I start reviewing the code and
go "that can't be right".

And I *definitely* shouldn't be in the situation where I need to come
in three weeks later and tell people what a regression is!
