This is what I feel. DBus is our system abstraction layer. I feel that
making ConsoleKit support the logind interface wouldn't be that big of
a patch and solve this issue, at least.

There's the issue with applications using systemd library directly,
since that talks to the filesystem rather than DBus. I'd really like
to see that changed, or at least have some shared client library that
talks over DBus but I don't have any power to do that.
