I do not know the current state of systemd inheriting the multi-seat functionality from consolekit, but when I was building TDE for Arch, when arch dropped consolekit and went to pure systemd, it broke tdm and there was a big push to implement multi-seat without consolekit that was never quite brought to fruition. Slavek probably recalls that mess. A good introduction of the consolekit/polkit/udisk relationship is: https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Multiseat -- David C. Rankin, J.D.,P.E.
