The targeted policy makes user accounts unconfined, which means theu are 
exempt from any selinux policy enforcement. This means that weak passwords 
+ privilege escalation vulnerabilities = broken server

Yes, I want to use the strict policy (or in current terms, I want to use 
'semanage login' to map __default__ to user_u, not unconfined_u. root 
will remain unconfined_u, so it isn't really strict policy either. it's 
somewhere between targeted and strict)
