You should be able to still use startxfce4 by using:
exec startxfce4

in .xsession, and not use any .xinitrc. Then, just run startx and you
should have
1) consolekit correctly setup
2) all stuff provided by startxfce4 (mainly this is the xscreensaver
stuff) running

In the end, I don't think we'll add the pam module to Recommends: of
xfce4-session already Recommends: hal, which depends on consolekit,
which Recommends: the libpam-ck-connector.

We will document the various ways to start Xfce in the xfce4-utils
README.Debian (see #526009 for more info), but I don't think we should
add anything more to xfce4-session.

What do you think?
