Yes, security is a compromise. Having dealt with selinux for quite
some time I've typically tried it, re-tried it, re-tried it again,
weighed my options and turned it off.

I didn't realize that turning off selinux meant I was such a bad
tester. I just thought it meant there were some parts of the system
that I was unwilling to test. I don't feel cheap or irresponsible.

If testing selinux is such an important part of the testing agreement,
please publish this information in a written rather than tacit place.
