I'd prefer to get this fixed in acpi-support-base, but I think you
have made your point very clear that the only purpose of that package is
to not do anything if some power manager is running and that to detect this
perfectly you are totally willing to force anyone to install consolekit
(and thus dbus) who justs wants his system shutting down cleanly when the
power button is pressed. That this is not issue for you at all and that
you do not see any problem in introducing this change 2012-06-21 i.e.
shortly before the freeze.

That sentence was much more neutral than anything I think I could have
written. After you were closing two bug reports by just dismissing the
issue, a "if that gets closed again" is a totally objective way to
describe expectations.
