Unfortunately, writing a DeviceKit backend for Solid isn't going to
magically give us that stuff, we need either to extend Solid to support the
new functionality (as has already been done for other stuff, the Solid API
is not set in stone, stuff can get added as long as binary compatibility is
kept) or write apps directly against DeviceKit-disks. I think we first need
to shoot for a DeviceKit backend to Solid which implements the existing
Solid interfaces.
