There are now restart and shutdown scripts in CK (i.e. to restart and
shutdown the system). They are authorized via polkit, and CK now has a
hard dependency on polkit. This isn't an immediate problem on FreeBSD
since polkit doesn't have a hard dependency on CK, but if that changes,
we will have a nice dependency loop.
The scripts themselves look like they came from HAL (at least the
FreeBSD versions). I wonder if HAL should be left to control this.
