1: e-mail is a people skill, you affect people with it.  The value
    of your presentation rises or falls with your skill at presentation.
2: My embedded headless linux targets live in isolated 
    networks, even relative to other computer or 
    network equipment at the target site.  At times, the nearest
    land is 2 miles straight down (ocean floor).
3: These targets are also without anything resembling 
    a linux-aware operator and (ipso facto) must generate 
    NO mail and self-limiting logs of a "usually ignored' type.

from the above, SELinux offers me *nothing* I need and costs me
something for which there is no reward.

Okay, I give.  I would like people to quantity/quality
"doesn't really need it."  I've really "bit my lip" on this
since just after the early stuff, but it keeps coming up over
and over.
