System Settings uses it (well, 1 or 2 modules do). And PolicyKit integration 
is advertised as a KDE 4.3 feature by upstream and even our feature page. So 
I think just dropping it is not an option.

I'd be willing to maintain PolicyKit 0.9 packages (as compatibility packages 
(though renaming should not be needed as they already have distinct names), 
to be used by KDE) for F12. It is my understanding that those will not 
conflict with PolicyKit 1 and can coexist just fine, if that's not the case, 
please correct me. So please don't obsolete PolicyKit 0.9!
