        I also would love to have a pre-install trigger (which I think
 is not present in the current patch; I'll be working on that) to ensure
 that a SELinux policy for a package is loaded before the package in
 unpacked; so that dpkg would be aware of initial security contects for
 files and directories before we unpack a package for the first time.
