That sounds to me like we won't be able to keep using the current CK
path for session tracking - I'm most certainly against reimplementing
removed CK bits in gnome-shell.

Yeah, we should probably do that - filed as bug 686482.

Well, it doesn't make much sense to run gnome-shell without
gnome-settings-daemon. So if you change the latter to require either
systemd or a dbus-compatible implementation, native CK support in the
shell won't be too useful - in that sense, it *is* your decision :-)

Note that I'm not complaining (I'm pretty sure the CK path is mostly
untested nowadays until it reaches end users), just saying that I
don't think we can consider g-s-d separately - a change like this will
have implications for other modules as well.
