The modularity people had considered moving modules into
libdnf. Once it lands there, rpm-ostree can gain understanding of them.
Though as far as I know there are no plans for PackageKit talking to rpm-ostree;
it'd be weird since rpm-ostree is already daemon with a DBus API and
polkit auth and its own notion of transactions etc. Hence clients
like Cockpit and gnome-software should learn to speak to rpm-ostree
for installing modules once most of the logic lands in libdnf.
