I do have libpam-systemd, but neither systemd-sysv nor systemd-shim.

Obviously none of them was needed for xfce4-session << 4.10.1-7 (dpkg
does not now them, so they were never installed) and they are also not
required by the libpam-systemd package.

I think the xfce4-session dependencies should be changed in the
following way then:

Currently it depends on libpolkit-gobject-1-0 and recommends
libpam-systemd, systemd-shim | systemd-sysv.

Since libpolkit-gobject-1-0 depends on policykit-1 and policykit-1
depends on libpam-system, the first recommendation is useless since it
will be installed anyway. If systemd-shim or systemd-sysv are required,
they should be a dependency not a recommendation.

What do you think?
