SELinux: Running samba unconfined

I don't want to disable SELinux, but i'm using samba to access about every file on the system. To run samba unconfined, change its context:
chcon -t unconfined_exec_t /usr/sbin/smbd
service smb restart

This works for other software as well.

Update: Another solution may be to run software in permissive mode. I just changed the mode of one postfix sub-program to permissive mode: semanage permissive -a postfix_pipe_t
