Hi Dan,

I have to start by admitting I've never used or even looked at
policykit before.

If printf or fflush fails, this probably return -1.

A consistency nit: you might want to make EOF be treated the same as
an empty name.  Currently typing EOF to fgets (which then returns NULL)
makes this code return -1, while entering an empty line doesn't.
At least with passwords, I confirmed that cvs login treats ^D like
the empty string.

On the other hand, an empty name probably makes no sense in many
applications.

If getpass fails (it'd return NULL), return -1.
Otherwise, the following strdup would segfault.
