quite simply: to avoid having a gnome runtime dependency for use of policykit.

yes, we could move that off to distributions to fix, but that screws our from-
source users and continues this rediculous "let the distros fix things we 
can't, even though we really ought to be able to" pattern of behaviour we tend 
to exhibit at times.

while i completely understand the release team's desire to stick to the plan 
for the health and benefit fo the project, i'd like to see us not become so 
bound to a set of rules we make for ourselves that we end up shooting 
ourselves in the foot just to "obey the rules".

in this case, allowing people to use policykit without having to install gnome 
seems like a good thing.

i'm about to go take a look at this code in question and i'll report back in a 
bit. something that it doesn't seem anyone else in this thread has actually 
done yet?
