And have a separate package for its selinux parts, <package>-selinux
(a'la *-debuginfo). That way, non-SELinux installs don't need to install
them and the selinux bits can call on functions that only exist when
SELinux is installed. And who knows ... if down-the-line fedora decides
to shift to a different security policy, it'll be easier because it was
cleanly separated in the packages.
