Thanks, I'll try it. Shouldn't library do the proper initialization? Then it's 
OK for us and it's better for other nongtk projects (not only KDE) - I think 
once we have library it's useless to duplicate work.
But we agreed with upstream that directly using dbus is best for us but first 
I tried to do port line by line according to your patches/docs/porting 
guide...

I thought polkit library which depends on glib initialization is not right 
cross desktop solution...
