There's no PAM service that would be suitable for this. You have to
wait for the tty and any X display to be set up before you can usefully
register with ConsoleKit. With privsep, the PAM session and setcred
services are called way too early for this to have happened, and moving
them around would take us back to the bad old days and break lots of

I don't see a way to support this with pam-ck-connector short of
creating a whole new PAM service just for it, which seems pretty
heavyweight. I did try this approach first.
