Marco pointed at the wrong piece of software. PolicyKit is meant for
GUIs that authenticate users to grant them extra privileges. The one
that helps dealing with hardware without the need for groups is
ConsoleKit, which allows to grant D-Bus privileges based on who is
physically using the machine.

Applications making use of such features only need to depend on D-Bus.
