It's not possible without code changes, but I wouldn't mind if a patch
showed up.  It should be pretty simple to do as the PolicyKit code isn't
that hard to find, and isn't too hard to work around.  Basically,
instead of doing the PK stuff, just call the callback that we pass to PK
with a result of AUTHORIZED.  We do want it appropriately #ifdefed
though, but it might be simpler to just make a small helper sourcefile
for this that simulates the Polkit functions and bypasses them
internally if polkit is disabled.
