I installed xguest to a running livecd (desktop ks file) and played with
two booleans related to it: browser_write_xguest_data, and
xguest_connect_network. With the former turned off the Guest account
could not download files from random internet sites, and with the latter
it couldn't connect at all, so I'd say they were functioning as
expected. I'm pretty confident SELinux booleans are working correctly
with these changes. If you have other tests to suggest I'd be happy to
try them out.
