Actually, I'm not undecided. If the backend can't Cancel, should the
PkClient "emulate" the cancel? i.e. ignore all output from the deamon
from that tid, and emit a finished canceled signal?

This would mean the thread is still running in the daemon, but the
client tools would all do the right thing without lots of if
(cancel_supported) calls.
