Not quite yet, but we've got a feature request for it in bugzilla and
I've already spent some time thinking about it and discussing
implementation details with relevant people (Bastien, really).
The general idea is that you'd just check a "share my internet
connection over bluetooth" somewhere, which would poke NM to start up
sharing over bluetooth like any normal NM ICS works.
I have no idea when this would hit, since some of it depends on other UI
components like gnome-bluetooth or kde-bluetooth.
