Ok, so UPower isn't something we want to use for this then.

With Fedora, we can just assume systemd is always present, since
Fedora does not support usage without systemd anymore. For other
distros which don't use systemd, I guess we'll assume they're
continuing to ship pm-utils for now and use our existing code with
them, unless someone contributes something better.
