Hi Jordi, and thanks for this interesting report!

One point I'd like to see discussed is the Bluez5 transition:

For what is worth, the KDE Bluetooth stack (Bluedevil) has a new 
upstream version that supports Bluez5: 2.0~rc1. It's mostly an upload 
away and I might help the Qt-KDE Team out by just "doing it" soon… It 
works fine here at least.

Given that Bluez4 is already deprecated for a year (and will be for two 
at freeze time), I'd rather be leaning towards moving to Bluez5 as soon 
as possible to "force" the various environments to migrate (but I'm not 
a Bluez maintainer)…
