Well there are two interfaces to policykit (afaik), one if for
the auth dialog, that when i looked at the kde one i thought
that this was almost done, and the other ui, is the settings
ui, that only admins need to use, there you set if installing
packages for example should prompt for password... etc it's
called polkit-gnome-authorization.

imho they are very simple uis, but i don't know polkit
enough to measure how much work would be expended in
creating a kde/qt front end.

if the need is only at the polkit auth i can try to help
in it's development, i don't have much time but i can
try to see what's missing.

that would need to get fixed before kpackagekit could go into a kde release.

do you happen to know how much work we'd be looking at to create a KDE 
friendly UI set for policykit?

it's essentially a runtime dependency which is enough.
