That changes things in my implementation.  That means that
cert1/cert2/cert3 do not need _any_ SELinux labeling, because they are
not files in the file system (just names within a database);
furthermore, since they are not files, my documentation efforts of
calling them out as absolute files in the docs needs tweaking.
Meanwhile, the database _does_ need SELinux labeling (and I'm assuming
here that the database argument, if provided, must be an absolute path
to the actual file containing the database of the three certificate
names).  What does the database default to if you omit it from the qemu
command line?
