The whole approach, I think.  Although I am just guessing.  I'm sorry,
I didn't mean to derail you when you were making progress.

Right.  Much of what was there was an inevitable consequence of the
approach, though.

I will see if I can find some tim to dig into the polkit source to see
if I can't see a better way.  If not I may be able to at least produce
a convincing argument why it has to be done this way, that's better
than "we tried it the other way and it didn't work"...

Or maybe we should just ask the polkit maintainers what they think.

If I emailed you from an address @fyvzl.net or @evade.org.uk, that is
a private address which bypasses my fierce spamfilter.
