I know you probably don't want anyone hand editing the 
/var/lib/PolicyKit-public/* files, but it is a quick and easy way to 
test things.

FYI : the parser can't tolerate a carriage return at the end of the 
line; e.g;

echo "yes:yes:yes" > foo.bar


echo -n "yes:yes:yes" > foo.bar

...it prints a "Out of Memory" error when running polkit-action from the 
command line, and things like the ACPI button shutdown stop working.
