     - Split libpolkit into three libraries
       - libpolkit : to be used only by mechanisms and modules
       - libpolkit-dbus : utility library for libpolkit to get caller, session
                          etc. info from the bus and ConsoleKit
       - libpolkit-grant : client side library for obtaining privileges; uses
                           a setgid helper internally
    
     - grant functionality
       - a helper library, libpolkit-grant, to gain privileges
         - includes a setgid $POLKIT_GROUP helper to write granted privileges
       - a PK module, to read and interpret granted privileges
       - a cmdline app, polkit-grant, using said library
    
     - Other changes
       - so it turns out that sizeof(bool) != sizeof(gboolean), sizeof(dbus_bool_t)
         This blows so define our own polkit_bool_t type
       - add some validation routines
    
    The grant functionality, especially the setgid helper needs thorough
    security review before we can release it.
