+Hans De Goede finally got root-less Xorg working with systemd-logind. Now we have weston and Xorg using systemd-logind optionally for unprivileged device-access.

And the best thing about this is: I didn't write a single line of code! He just picked the idea up and hacked on Xorg (and to be honest, I would have been screwed trying to read Xorg-core code..).

If you're at FOSDEM or devconf, you should really check out his talk about this! ([1], [2])
