How do you figure it's useful? I can only imagine the bug reports -
"all my settings disappear when I log out!" "my wireless key keeps
getting forgotten!" (insert any number of other complaints due to lack
of understanding of what's going on here).
Guest user facility is a standard feature is systems like Vista, OS X or
even Ubuntu recently. I demo'ed this feature recently to some users who
very much liked it.
Also, it requires SELinux to be in enforcing mode in order to do it's
magic - according to smolt, we're at 54.8% of systems with SELinux
enforcing (notwithstanding that smolt is obviously not an
authoritative source of data, simply putting a stake in the ground
Not only is it not authoritative, it is wrong since it was collecting
incorrect information due to some bug IIRC
Also, such an item would require exposure and testing. Feature freeze
for Fedora 11 is under a week away.
Feature freeze doesn't determine testing and xguest is not a new feature.
