I'm thinking I should start using it, but I'd have to learn how first.

There's a topic for a talk.  (Not "Teach Dave how to use selinux," but 
"How I came to love selinux".  You know, like when we used to do talks 
about ssh because no one knew what it was or how cool port forwarding is.)

George said permissions but that didn't mean selinux to me.  What do 
people call the things selinux version of permissions?  (Hopefully not 
"permissions" because I'll never keep that straight.)
