Hello Claudio,

I want support for bluetooth in NM too.
Bluetooth is in NM spec, so I think it is useful for this list.
Right now I am using bluetooth with PAN in a manual way and works fine,
but I would love to have it in NM.
I can help with testing as I already have a PAN at home.
It should be even more simple than wireless, as it does not have the
complexity and multiple authentication types as wireless.
Even more, the mess in wireless is because of different drivers with
different behaviors, but in bluetooth, all drivers are from BlueZ stack.
