Good point.  I'm on gentoo, and I have USE flags (that control 
dependencies at build-time, etc) off, unless I know I need them on for 
some reason.

I do run systemd, but I have policy-kit turned off and not installed, 
along with another USE flag IDR on some plasma5 package IDR ATM, that 
IIRC /was/ documented as being required for session switching, etc.

So it might not be a normal user option, but rather, it could be an 
option that shows up if you've built the appropriate plasma5 component 
against the appropriate dependencies, as most binary-based distributions 
would, that doesn't show up if you haven't, thus explaining my lack of 
that option, here.
