meanwhile and provides a CLI interface it still requires polkit. Polkit requires consolekit and both mean configuration and maintenance trouble.
Just a quick comment in case someone happens to read this: neither PK nor CK should require any configuration at all for most users (at least if you use a DE).
This isn't exactly no configuration: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Networkmanager#Set_up_PolicyKit_permiss...
The configuration file shown there is optional.
The alternative is to run polkit-gnome or polkit-kde, luckily it seems that polkit-gnome is a misnomer and it only depends on gtk3. So your options are to have an authentication agent running or add some files for every app that needs permissions. In addition you need to have a consolekit-session running in any case. Life's not getting easier for no-DE users.
