Also keep in mind that if SELinux break something on the desktop, THAT 
is a bug.  Starting before F8 I personally began to use SELinux enabled 
all the time.  At first a few things were broken, but I figured out how 
to report smart Bugzilla reports against selinux-policy and dwalsh takes 
care of them real quick.
