Hi Michael.

I doubt that I'll find the time to write patches for this soon ;) ... but for the records.

The scripts (e.g. powerdownbtn) should use consolekit in order to determine whether sessions are still
open, and if so ignore the event, and if not carry it out.

Right now, AFAIU, the scripts just look whether e.g. gdm is running, and if so do ignore the event.
This means however also, that e.g. powerdownbtn won't work, if just gdm is running, but no one
logged actually in.
