Yeah, another recent topic which seems to get some movement again (and 
partially works).

Geoffroy, many thanks for taking on this challenge. The main problem 
with bluetooth these days is that many applications are simply not 
compatible and integration into the desktop environments is often 
broken. And to make it worse, in the bluez 3 -> bluez 4 update, the 
bluez people completely broke their dbus API.
So fixing up applications for compatibility, finding patches, making 
sure upstream will merge them will probably be part of what you'll do 
and I hope we'll get to a better state soon.
