BSD Secure Levels also uses the same infrastructure that AppArmor uses
(the LSM hook framework), it is way easier than AppArmor, but it is
not necessarily the best tool for the job of securing a system in
the way that an admin may require.

Personally, I would prefer the power, flexibility, and (yes)
complexity of SE Linux over many other MAC solutions out
there. AppArmor may be a good solution for many cases, but just
because it is simpler does not mean that it can do a better job of
securing a system than SE Linux can do.
