Maybe, but now its in a state of it-just-works-with-minor-bugs.

Afaik, nothing directly depends on polkit-kde. However, hal depends on 
PolicyKit. So to do certain hal functions with privilege elevation, the user 
needs a gui for authentication. The only other known gui for this is 
PolicyKit-gnome, so getting it into 4.2 will allow KDE developers to be a bit 
more comfortable in knowing that if they end up use polkit for something 
(indrectly or otherwise), KDE has support for it built in.
