This sounds very cool, and I want to switch to consolekit in Debian
Edu.  For that to work out, it would be great if it made it to Lenny.

Btw, the module creating stuff in /var/run/console/ is called
pam_foreground, I believe, not pam_console.

I am still looking for documentation on how to set up consolekit
properly, though.  :)

Happy hacking,
