The SELinux hookup originally came from SELinux people. These are
questions only SELinux people really can answer.

If you think the SELinux code in systemd should work differenntly,
please file a PR changing it, and get a review/blessing from the
SELinux people and we'll basically merge anything that codewise looks

Don't assume we as systemd people would also be SELinux people with a
deep understanding how SELinux should operate. We are generally not.

Sorry, if that's disappointing.
