	And thereby hangs an old sad tale. I looked at that -- and found 
it utterly incomprehensible. 

	It seems to inhere in the human condition that those who achieve 
extreme command of any field lose in the process all recollection of what 
it's like for the uninitiated : one comes to think "How could it be any 
simpler?? Surely *everyone* knows XWQKZ ..."

	Yes, I've been there and done that, too, though in fields 
unrelated to computing and the Net.

	<sigh>

	Maybe the new GUI will jump the gap; or the one rebuilt from it 
after enough feedback from this list. 

	Fwiw, I am now persuaded to go on tolerating SELinux for another 
Fedora release or two, on general principles -- but I'll also be very 
curious to see what if anything happens to the machine with it disabled.

	Thanks again for all the discussion! If there are any finer 
groups of people online than those who build linux, especially Fedora, 
they're mighty few. Mighty few. Strength to all your arms!
