The solution already seems to be implemented.

$ apt-cache show xfce4-power-manager | grep shim
Recommends: libpam-systemd, systemd-shim | systemd-sysv

Why was this bug report reopened? Why was it even filed in the first place?
The solution seems to have been there all the time.
Maybe systemd-shim being broken for a while confused you, but that should
be (and was) reported against systemd-shim.
