Well, it's a tricky one, because there's no point in setting this bit
unless you're going to be running an OBEX server.  Unfortunately, it
requires root permissions to set this bit, and OBEX servers should not
normally be running as root.

I don't personally have the time right now to write a debconf based
script to configure the device class, but on the other hand if somebody
else did I'd be willing to accept the patch into the Debian packages.

One thing I can and probably should do is add a note into bluez-utils'
README.Debian file.

and warn the user if it isn't.
