Vala and PolicyKit

view story

http://stackoverflow.com – I'm creating a simple GTK+ based application in Vala, which should be able to write into system directories, so it needs root access. I realize that giving full root access is a bad idea, so I need a way to gain temporary privileges. In theory, the PolicyKit D-Bus service is the tool for the job, but I have no idea how to use it, let alone in Vala code. Any insight would be appreciated. (HowTos)
