[packagekit] searching for helpers

I notice that packagekitd looks for helper scripts in ../backends/ before the
standard absolute location /usr/share/PackageKit/helpers/.

Sure this is to support uninstalled operation, but I wonder if it is a good idea
to leave in the installed binary. I know we removed such pwd-relative features
from the beagle and tomboy wrappers in Fedora, and those are not even run
as root...

Out of interest, what pwd is packagekitd run in ?
