Part of our (kde-sig) evaluation here is whether there is sufficient api 
docs, collaboration, etc... to make a best effort to make F12/KDE use or 
be compatible with the PolicyKit1 feature ( 
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/PolicyKitOne )

Lacking that, we would have several options, including
* request FESCo to reject this feature for F12 as not ready (and use the 
fallback plan).
* drop PolicyKit support altogether
