PackageKit is no GNOME package (it's not part of GNOME). There is a GNOME
frontend for it, called "GNOME-PackageKit". The PackageKit daemon uses
GLib, but that's all.
But as PackageKit is used (can be used) by many GNOME applications, the
GNOME development team might be interested in having this in the repos.
So, I'll write to their mailing list later, maybe someone is interested in
sponsoring the package.

Yep, at least I have some kind of perspective for this package now. I'll
first ask the Ubuntu devs, then post on the pkg-gnome mailinglist.
