1. Add ability for MM to identify Bluetooth modems
2. Add plugin in bluez to poke at the modem with MM if it doesn't know
the type of device, cache the result, the bluez plugin exports the
information through a service
3. Add DUN gnome-bluetooth plugin to nm-applet which would poke the
4. Add native support in NM to do the connection through bluetoothd
After 3., if the box is ticked, the device should appear like an
unconfigured WWAN modem to the user. The service configuration can then
be done through nm-applet.
I can certainly take care of 2. and 3. if you do 1. and the left-overs
of 4 :)
