Yeah, another recent topic which seems to get some movement again (and

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.
