[Bug 289331] Re: No way to tell which Bluetooth devices are active, nearby, or otherwise valid.

Having a bunch of packages with blue*-gnome/gnome-blue* that launch
pieces from each other makes things confusing.  There is  "bluetooth-
properties" program that shows it, and the other one displays EVERY
bluetooth device when you select Browse Device, not just those which
have any possibility of file transfer.

There is nothing quite like the Nokia N810 Maemo bluetooth applet which
actually manages bluetooth devices, lets me find, rename, organize, and
pair them.  Perhaps that should be ported, but the fragmented support
under Ubuntu (Hardy and earlier) is what I have and must use for now.  I
hope Intrepid is better as it sounds like it, but I'm waiting for the
official release next week (DVD so I can do three plus computers) and
wasn't aware the BT UI was going to be redone.

Here is the apt-cache policy output and lsb release
