What about replacing /etc/bluetooth/link_key with an ASCII version in
/etc/bluetooth/keytab? I'll work on a patch for it..

I'm also thinking about the possibility of making a device name cache 
in /etc/bluetooth/names, somewhat similar to /etc/hosts. And so whenever
someone requests a scan this table can be updated:

# /etc/bluetooth/names
# Bluetooth address	Last updated	Device name
00:11:22:33:44:55	1075337039	Some Bluetooth device name
66:77:88:99:00:11	1075337039	Some other Bluetooth device name

The configuration for this service can for example be located in

Having a device name cache makes it a lot easier to display the names
associated with the addresses in the /etc/bluetooth/keytab file.
