You don't need it and in the context of a maemo as Jim clarified for me,
it may not be something you want anyway. Policy Kit is just a standard
way for a given application to request special privileges (e.g. realtime
priority etc.) It's useful in desktop scenarios to provide standard
policies system wide, but with a single user handheld device it's maybe
a bit overkill. Though there is still the argument that a good general
desktop design can still apply to a handheld...
