I've checked some major changes to the code into CVS today.  Anyone
developing against gnome-bluetooth may want to check it out from CVS and
take a look.

The main news:

* Bonobo-ectomy: the Bonobo component has been completely removed,
  and tools that depend on it rewritten.

* Addition of GnomebtController class.  All the functionality that 
  was in the Bonobo object is in this class now.  It ships with
  Python bindings, too.

* Addition of GnomebtChooser dialog widget.  The beginnings of a 
  standard widget for users to choose a device.  The obex sender app
  now uses this.

Things are likely to be in flux for a little while longer yet, but I'm
pleased with the direction things are going.  I made a few small changes
to libbtctl to support the requirements of gnome-bluetooth so if you
want to compile it, you'll need CVS HEAD versions of both.

The main obstacle I'm trying to get round is that device inquiry is a
long and seemingly uninterruptible process using BlueZ on Linux.
