I DO NOT consider this an option.  If things do not work with respect to 
SELinux it is either a bug or I do not understand something.

I am just starting and have (as far as I can tell) all of the Virtualization 
packages installed.  But, before I go too far with this stuff, I need to figure 
out how to handle the libvirt files so that I can esily move to the next 
version of the system and so it does not fill my "/" logical volume.
