Well, I'm sure the backend stuff will be useful in any case. And I
don't think it will be a complete usability disaster in anyway. ;) But
hey, if there are ways (documentation, discussions etc.) to make a nice
initial design I'd be happy.

For the first version, I'm aiming at basic "let's see if there are any
Bluetooth devices active" and limited configuration like setting 
device names and making things discoverable and pairable. I don't have
any particular opinion on most of the other settings and these can be
left out if they lead to usability disasters. I also like to hear if
some settings can be simplified.

That would be great!
