I was reading the FC6 Release Notes, and they *almost* deprecate upgrades!?

The problem is that getting my desktop machine back its original state
under FC5 after a fresh install of FC6 would be a huge effort.

Actually, further research shows that the problem is not limited to
the xfs server. There's a whole bunch of "avc: denied" problems. And I
discovered there is a fedora-selinux list. So I'm moving this
discussion over there...
