It's very nice you work on it. Too bad you use a dead-born deprecated
distro ;)

As Franky already mentioned, bluez3 and bluez4 interfaces are
completely different, so porting won't be that easy :-/

Yep, no problems with that.

One of the reasons FSO integrates functionality of powering and
resetting devices is exactly that. Higher level app devs shouldn't be
bothered with kernel changes, FSO quickly adopts to it and you receive
all updates free. In fact, you might like the idea of FSO, take a look
at specs ;)

Be free, use free ( software!
