Well you can do that by creating a Zlocal.tun

This tunable can undefine and define til its hearts content.  It should be
preserved.  Call it Zlocal.tun to make sure it is processed last.

Actually this is a bug in system-config-securitylevel.  It should save its
customizations in Zlocal.tun

Comment 3 Daniel Walsh 2005-10-27 20:15:16 UTC
system-config-securitylevel is editing and changing files in 
/etc/selinux/POLICYTYPE/src/policy/tunables/

Problem is that they are not preserved across rpm upgrades.  I believe the
ability to change these should be removed from the tool.  We should only be
changing booleans.  We are removing policy-sources from FC5 anyways.
