More than just convenience

It's worth noting that this is more than just convenience.
If if was just that we probably would not have added this to coreutils.

By integrating with coreutils, it allows one to create items
with the correct context without races. I.E. the coreutils code
sets the default context with which the file system item is created,
rather than creating as normal and adjusting afterwards.

Re: More than just convenience

Yes I agree. Have a file mislabeled is a potential security problem, or could break an application. Having it labeled correctly at creation can fix these problems.
