Unfortunately, udisks is a bit upside-down in this regard. I'm sure
someone will correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe libudisks is
actually a wrapper around the daemon (as crazy as that is/sounds).

If what you want is a library that can manage various kinds of local
storage you probably want libblockdev. It is what udisks uses to
interact with the various types of storage.
