It'd be good to have a note that explained what exactly goes wrong if
SELinux is in enforcing, so:

a) we can recognize the problem if/when it happens again, and
b) we can try to actually fix it (or at least work around it better) in
the future.

Right now when I try to talk to the SELinux guys about it, they ask:
well, what goes wrong when you try it? And I.. don't remember.
