If it is that difficult on Fedora/RHEL to have sysadmins add /sbin to
their $PATHs if they need it, then we can divert them by asking them
to understand selinux first. ;)

(I think selinux is a wonderful technology, but it really requires
highly skilled admins to perform anything non-trivial - and I'm more
than happy with Dan's dumb users' management, me being one of them! :)
