Maybe a simple replacement for logind in this scenario is possible (it's only being used as a simple message-passer, after all) which doesn't require drinking all the world-encompassing systemd kool-aid.

You could resurrect ConsoleKit and port the patches going into systemd-logind to it.

Also, running logind does not require running, or even installing, systemd (though you can't build one without building the other). An upstart/logind or sysvinit/logind setup would require slightly more configuration than a systemd/logind setup, but really no more (but of course different) configuration compared to an upstart/ConsoleKit or sysvinit/ConsoleKit setup, so not out of reach of the distro packagers.
