 From my initial tests, it seems that bluez 5 is working way better than 
bluez 4 with my few bluetooth devices.

Bluetooth enablement/disablement and pairing works well across unity 
control center and the indicator and sync their status as expected.

The only gotcha I spotted right now is that I can't use (it's disabled) 
the "Connection" button in unity control center once the device has been 
paired. Using the indicator to connect is available and works well (I 
can send files for instance, after that). IIRC, this issue was already 
present when we worked on the bluez 5 transition last cycle.
