 Personally I don't think this should be implemented in intone, this
sort of system-wide activity should be handled by FSO (and I believe
there is work on-going towards this) and intone should just offer the
option to make use of an already configured bluetooth device if it exists.

 Also, IIRC, BlueMoko still uses bluez 3.3, while most images now use
bluez 4 by default. So if you went down that path you'd probably end up
having to support two different methods of pairing.
