Package: obsession
Version: 20140608-2+b1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

Jsut a comment about obession package. I run a minimal setup without systemd, consolekit and policykit. Whereas obession works without them, it loose a lot of its interestinf features. No halt, no reboot, so I think, either 

- at least mark systemd or consolekit as recommendes packages

- add a "legacy" fallback features to you package that send "shutdown" or "halt" commands.
