all implementations should use the new D-Bus interface only. Using the
Bluetooth library from BlueZ is not portable. For the configuration of
the local adapters, searching for new devices and handling trusted
devices everything is already in place.

For the file sharing a D-Bus enabled OBEX server (OPP, FTP and even BIP)
is needed. Feel free to post thoughts about an interface for it to the
BlueZ developer mailing list.
