Right. From a gnome-power-manager point of view, all I needed to do
was remove the PolicyKit code from gnome-power-manager and depend on a
version of DeviceKit-power and GConf that has the PolicyKit1 mechanism
code, rather than the old PolicyKit mechanism code.

Today I merged in the polkit1 branches into master of DeviceKit-power,
gnome-packagekit and gnome-power-manager, and have already done it for
PackageKit 0.5.0.

I think the decision (to bump to 0.92) is an easy one given that 0.9 is dead.
