So how would people feel about a separate relaxed policy that allows
everything in the system to run completely unconfined except for a small
set of specific services, e.g. apache, bind, postfix, ...
That would ensure that SELinux wouldn't get in the way of users, while
providing some protection benefit for network-facing services.
Hmm.. that sounds like something that might be a good idea for some
environments, but it's not something that I want on my machines.
Personally, I *like* the idea that things like Mozilla and my MUA can
be confined - my machines are already hardened enough that those two
are positively the soft underbelly of the system....
