I should comment on that - on systems prior to F10 I used to have /home as a
symlink to a home directory on another partition - but that caused real (avc
denial) problems when I ran F10 which was the first time I used SElinux in
earnest - so now I used a bind mount rather than a symlink and SElinux does
not complain.  Since SElinux is there by default now, and with no install
option to disable it I decided to climb the SElinux learning curve, and now
all my systems run with SElinux enabled for F10 - I am now happy with that
though there are a few tweaks needed for some applications to work without
avc denials.

I also use bind mounts for mail directories that are stored locally using
dovecot imap so that my previous system's email is not lost during install
of a new system.

No doubt there will be some "tweaking" needed for F11 also!
