selinux eradicator?

I'm never gonna use selinx, yet every new batch of updates
seems to have yet another new version of a slew of
selinux packages to download and install, with half of
them wasting time doing find commands to do god knows
what to every file on my system :-).

Out of idle curiosity, I asked yum what would happen
if I tried to remove every rpm that has selinux in
its description.

The result was that just about (maybe not even about)
every single rpm on my system would be removed for

Is there any set of selinux stuff I can actually remove?

Anyone working on a alternate repo of bizzaro-selinux
packages that will satisfy the dependencies while only
downloading a few hundred bytes and executing no complicated
side effects when installed?

Or maybe a selinux free fedora spin?

Maybe on the more realistic side: How about a
/etc/sysconfig/selinux variable I could set that
would inform the rpms I'm never ever gonna enable
selinux, and they can just skip all the time wasting
nonsense they normally do when installed?
