Is rPi going-off-the-rails ?!

I was trying a new-for-me feature of mc, which caused the non-X-terminal
to hang; and I wanted to kill the terminal, without disturbing other
mc running in X.
Previously I noticed the strange/absurd multiple "{console-kit-dae}"
in `pstree -p`. See the log-trace below.
The absurd-growth of "{console-kit-dae}" prompts me to comment on
the evolution of rPi.
I read about the rPi.
How much current is that going to consume?!
Already the battery-powerability is a problem.
Will the quest to ape WinTel kill the original rPi idea?
What low-power open-linux systems are available?
== TIA

Why don't you read at the URL below.

You might find answers there to your questions. How by the way do you define low power?

ConsoleKit is a long dead, and it's going away. There's no point in ranting about CK at this time. Given that, what's your issue precisely?

The absurd `pstree -p` is from a standard 2013 rPi.
OK, that confirms that they're trying to ape WinTel
Well, the bloke told about his Sharp-pocket-calculator which still used the batteries from a decade ago; but the original rPi uses 2 Watt [without display]. So you'd want no more than 100mA * 5V for portability.

Speaking of aping, this is now either the 10th "Chris Glur" morph in my scorefile, or someone is very good at imitating him.
