This won't mean that if you are trying to recover a disk that won't boot, or
something, that you might not have access to your stuff if you can't somehow
remember the context you used or whatever? Is it safe to assume if you can
mount the partitions of a disk then you can undo the SELinux stuff to recover
what's on it from a system you have admin access on regardless of the context
on the disk you are trying to access? 

Btw, thanks (and to anyone else who did) for CCing me on reply since I get digests.
