Default Polkit Shutdown for XFCE in Freebsd 7.0

My prior post is the old forum fell victim to bad timing when I posted during the great migration.

FreeBSD 7 stable running Xfce. It appears that user shutdown and reboot have been moved from sudo to PolicyKit. The documentation on this is a little sparse (man PolicyKit states it remains to be written) at this time.

I think I have the general idea but am failing with the syntax. Could someone post their PolicyKit.conf code that enable user shutdown/reboot?

Thanks in advance

At the risk of being accused of bumping my thread here is my PolicyKit.conf.
Note that automount for removable drives functions:

Code:
<config version="0.1">
  <match action="org.freedesktop.hal.power-management.shutdown">
    <match usr="jsh">
      <return result="yes"/>
    </match>
  </match>
  <match action="org.freedesktop.hal.power-management.reboot">
    <match user="jsh">
      <return result="yes"/>
    </match>
  </match>
  <match action="org.freedesktop.hal.storage.mount-removable">
    <match user="jsh">
      <return result="yes"/>
    </match>
  </match>
    <match user="root">
        <return result="yes"/>
    </match>
    <define_admin_auth group="wheel"/>
</config>
Any help appreciated
