I don't think a team up with Kde Bluetooth would be ideal. For the ppl who 
just need the Irda stuff, they would want to get KBeam and that's it (I think 
it would be an overkill for them to have to get Kde Bluetooth).
But for the extragear, that's a very good idea ! I'm gonna contact the 
extragear maintainer.
