Has someone checked yet whether this is actually possible? There are
nuances here. It depends whether PackageKit is capable of using up the
space reserved for root when installing packages or not. Even if it's
operating 'as root', it doesn't necessarily follow that it can, as I
understand it. Please check this before asserting it.
