Biggest problem with selinux is that it is so badly integrated into the 
toolchain. You have to remember to alter selinux for every little thing you do, 
you have to remember to goups and policies you made.

SElinux is just another tool. System security involves the entire system. It is 
not possible to install some software product and then have everything secure.

Most blame SElinux when the problem is really pebkac. :)
