FWIW, I attended an SELinux talk at FOSDEM last month.  The majority of
all his examples were with our httpd.  In questions at the end, I
stressed the need for decent tutorial documentation and for meaningful
error messages when something is denied.  His reaction was pretty
negative ("unlikely to happen"), and others around the room seemed
pretty negative about any likelihood of anything improving and
supported a "selinux is the enemy" view.
