Look closer then.

The big advantage of the new api is that the PolicyKit interaction is
kept entirely on the mechanism side, with no need for clients do a
complicated first-call-mechanism-then-polkit-then-mechanism-again dance.
The consequence is that porting to the new api often just means dropping
polkit-specific code from the clients.
