Not out of the box. There is an addon [1], which also reads the old pkla
files under the new policykit. But I'm not convinced this is actually a
good idea. Having the old and new rules side by side makes it really
hard to determine which one actually takes effect.

I'm not a huge fan of the new, JS-based format, fwiw. Which is the main
reason policykit-1 (>= 0.106) is not in Debian unstable.

Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
