Come over here and I can show you mine ;)

Well, my view is different: I think the approach current Fedora
selinux-policies are based on is flawed by design and can hardly be made
functional for a very small subset of configurations.

ATM, to me, this subset of configurations is a standalone, single user
desktop.

May-be true, may not be true - Future may tell, we will see.

At the moment, to me, the effort related to getting SELinux working in a
network by far outweighs SELinux potential benefits.
