FWIW, +1 from me. We still have a number of upstream projects using
"at_console", and since current upstream consolekit does not support
creating these tags, we had to create a patch for that ourselves (see
FD #14053). Slowly migrating away from this would be great, since the
current dbus upstream implementation of "at_console" is not very
useful IMHO.
