VMWare's SELinux problem is caused by their shady RPM's and have nothing
to do with F9/F10.
Officially, VMWare only supports RHEL 4.x and 5.x. Fedora is not
supported and their SELinux support (built into their RPMs) was designed
to support RHEL.

In short, unless RHEL starts supporting distributions beyond EPEL and
SLES, there's nothing to be done in the Fedora side of things.
