Why? You're just punting the problem a little further along, until which
point we create another extend to allow you to wrap above XEvIE, just as
XEvIE allows you to wrap above grabs.

Instead, it'd be awesome to solve the problem of PolicyKit not trusting
any external processes/windows, yet still needing input that will
occasionally require assistance from external processes/windows.  Solve
that and you're sorted.
