Just a quick update.  You can blame me for the delay, I was a bit 
distracted trying to get things ready for the 2.6.28 merge window and 
the NetLabel kernel API changes got pushed aside for a few weeks.  I 
just sent Casey a draft patch of the new API bits to review; with any 
luck I'll have something to post as an RFC patch shortly.

Thanks for your patience.
