I know some provide a -selinux sub-package to deal with doing selinux
policy changes.  I'm not sure if this is the official, preferred way or
not however.  And there's no real automated way for someone installing
your package (who has selinux enabled on their machine) to even be
aware that the -selinux package exists.  I ran into this with awstats.
So you might make mention of it in the README.Fedora for the main
package at the very least.
