6 A few minor comments:
8 1. While it is somewhat implicit in the headers, you might want to
9 mention in the text that this will not impact systemd profiles and
10 that those will just use logind. It is a natural question people will
11 end up asking anyway.
13 2. As evidenced in [1], many users probably have no idea what
14 consolekit, logind, or elogind actually do (or policykit/dbus and a
15 bunch of other modern desktop-oriented tooling that wasn't around back
16 when we were all editing X11 mode lines). You might want to just toss
17 in a sentence or two to explain that as background, since people are
18 going to worry especially with the dreaded s-word in there. Or find
19 some website that explains what it is reasonably well and link it with
20 a note in the text...
