No, I'm talking about the kit family and especially about PolicyKit
And if for Debian udev, PolicyKit etc. still should be available as an
independent package, then because Debian maintainers extract it from
systemd, "In April 2012, udev's source tree was merged into systemd" -
There are still howtos for Ubuntu, that refer to "/etc/init.d/foo start|
stop|status" instead of "service".
