Shipping old PolicyKit won't really help, as PackageKit etc. are all going
to get ported to the new one. The only reasonable thing to do is to BLOCK
the upgrade until it can be supported cross desktop. I'm really fed up of
having to play catch up with supposedly "shared" technologies getting
upgraded under us without anybody talking to KDE upstream or to us
(Fedora's KDE SIG) about the schedule. The PolicyKit-kde developer even
WANTS to support the new version, but he didn't get the documentation he
needs for that (and asked for weeks ago)! (Lack of documentation is a real
issue for this stuff. When I did the KDM ConsoleKit patch, I had to look at
source code, both of ConsoleKit and of GDM, to figure out what the heck was
going on.)
