If we do so, then we should also make sure that all do things 
consistently wrt /dev for creating a chroot as well.  And /proc and 
/sys.  The reality is that the different applications do have a somewhat 
different idea of what they need/want out of their chroots and do things 
(or don't) accordingly.

Which isn't to say that we might not decide down the road to push it 
down the stack, but I don't know that livecd-creator is a bad place in 
the short to medium term as Eric continues looking at SELinux and chroot 
interactions (Right Eric? :-)
