Samba access to /var/www/html and webalizer

Hi all,
I want to export my /var/www/html directory via Samba. Man samba_selinux 
suggests: "If you want to share files with multiple domains (Apache,  FTP, 
rsync, Samba),  you can set a file context of public_content_t and 
public_content_rw_t." Ok, I did just that and relabeled /var/www/html as 
public_content_rw_t. I found that Samba still cannot access /var/www/html, 
because /var/www was still labelled httpd_sys_content_t. Ok, I relabled 
/var/www as well.

Now I see that webalizer can't work. It can't enter its directory 
/var/www/usage, because /var/www is labelled public_content_t and webalizer 
can't search this directory.

Short of setting samba_export_all_rw, is there a way to get both Samba and 
Webalizer to work? Perhaps webalizer should be allowed to read/search 
public_content_t and public_content_rw_t?
