Oh, OK. When binary policy modules appear maybe it would be useful
to do it again so third party RPMs can be a part of the SELinux

At the moment the focus seems to be on totally centralised policy for
everything the user might want to run (or be secured) ... I can't see this
scaling as SELinux enters the mainstream.
