Technically I sent the mail on the 15th, but with it being the weekend and all 
I understand. We're not asking for the formal kdereview process, but are 
instead asking for some kind of exemption.

If KDE had a tighter integration with policykit, that'd be really slick. 
However, these are just the KDE gui bits. Our code is just a KDE frontend to 
the authenticator. Without this in 4.2, KDE can still use policykit, but it 
requires the user to have PolicyKit-gnome installed to authenticate or change 
the default permissions.
