I should probably look at it again. Last time I tried to use it I found
that it conflicted with the backup strategy I was using and with its
extension to make clan installs less painful.

I've moved the /usr/local, /usr/java and /var/www directory trees
to /home, which is a separate partition, and replaced them with
symlinks. So all I needed to backup is /home (now I use rsync for almost
everything) and I get a painless clean install by reformatting all other
partitions. I also have part of my internal website spread round three
login directories. The trouble was that this caused a big fight with
SEL that its config tool wasn't good enough to sort out.

Indeed. If SEL config tools are improved I'll consider enabling it
