Hence why I wrote "should" ;-)

I think Matthias said he would look at that including porting it to use
PolicyKit-gnome. At least I've been asking him about this for months and
kept giving the answer that it was in your hands and he would do it when
you were done merging ;-). So perhaps now is a good time to do it; for
what it's worth the latest patch in #491462 might give some hints on how
to use PK-gnome including the autotools stuff, setting vendor name +
icon in the .policy file (something missing right now) and so on etc.

Maybe. Or leave it to people who can't or won't use PolicyKit to add
their own checks to the privileged helper (GNOME 2.22 already depends on
a D-Bus version with system bus activation). I don't care.
