The problem is that PackageKit requires PolicyKit. We'd have to start the
GNOME PolicyKit authentication agent if we can't provide our own (and just
installing it is no longer enough because it doesn't use D-Bus activation
anymore, it needs to be autostarted in the desktop session). That or have a
second version of PackageKit built against PolicyKit 0.9, but I think
rhughes won't like that idea.
