[Mailman-Users] mm_cfg.py in /usr : SELinux problem

we are now having a problem, how to adapt mailman configuration (mm_cfg.py)
to SELinux policy:

it resides in /usr and the SELinux maintainer argues /usr should be read-only,
which is not satisfied, when you change the configuration (and the .pyc file
has to be generated in /usr/lib/mailman/Mailman/ , too)

I have thought about the way to fix this problem: simply moving the
file to /etc or /var is not enough, because it's part of the package "Mailman"
and lots of files say "from Mailman import mm_cfg"

any thoughts of this?
 thanks and regards,
