IMO dropping PolicyKit support is not an issue.  We need to get FESCO to 
understand that KDE is not PolicyKit1 ready and in the event that we can't get 
it there by F12 that this feature will need to be bumped to F13.  They need to 
realize that a feature that effects multiple desktops cannot be imposed 

I now see what Rex means, the KDE-SiG needs a voice in FESCO.
