No, not "just like..." anything. However, it works similarly
in attempting to trap accesess which are considered suspect.
I wasn't trying to draw any closer analogy than that.
How many times does THAT need to be explained?

The apps I'm talking about are find, ls, mv, cp, ssh, etc.
Since the file contexts are required by the kernel, I see no reason
