I do a lot of "stupid things" on my development systems. Some things I keep
in /home/data, I've got many /home/samba* dirs and project dirs in
/home/michal/projekty that need to be shared on samba and need to
be accesible by httpd servers. I never had time to deal with SELinux on
development system :)
