Obex FTP support is in the distant future, not near future, I'm afraid.
A lot of effort has gone into the obexftp commandline tool to get
compatibility right and if I started going that way it would just be an
endless time waste for me right now.

The best way to achieve this would be with a gnome-vfs module.  I think
that obexftp might have one of those.  If it does, then gnome-bluetooth
should do the necessary work to make it easy to open up said module from
Nautilus and other places.  volunteers?
