Oh, from a personal perspective, I'm quite comfortable doing a log off 
to the command line and then doing whatever is needed.  The issue is 
what users generally expect.  This dbus/ consolkit/ p11-kit and even pam 
stuff isn't necessary for 99% of users, but upstream seems intent on 
making it complicated.
