must be really a previous version, because I had no problems when I
removed the functions. So this must be gone a very very very long time
ago. However the functions are back in the CVS and they will appear in
bluez-libs-2.15 again. Until this date you may wanna simple grab the
patch from CVS for the Debian package. Ohh and btw Debian Sid needs some
new BlueZ packages ;)
