User-visible changes in Bluedevil:

* Bluedevil was ported to BluezQt. This comes with minor fixes everywhere
and also a new Bluetooth applet.
Due to it may be needed
to manually enable the applet in system tray settings.

* Added support for rfkill, allowing to block Bluetooth (so that the Bluetooth
led lights off on some laptops) and also to unblock it.
This requires a read/write access to /dev/rfkill device and should be provided
by distributions.

* There is no longer a Bluetooth shortcut in Places (eg. in Dolphin sidebar).
The shortcut was moved into Network view (remote:/).

* Connected devices with ObexFTP (Browse Files) support are now displayed
in Places.
