  Just thinking about it, maybe test that the change doesn't end up doing
too much performance degradation. For example if instead of doing RPC to
proxy + hypercall, we end up doing RPC to daemon + PolicyKit (DBus RPC
+ lookup) + say xend access, this may introduce some regression. I assume
all calls previously serviced by the proxy would still be allowed freely
without PolicyKit checking, right ?
