I had time to try this out - and works well. It creates a /proc/acpi/asus/bt 
file, that works just like the camera - echo a 0 or a 1 and the bluetooth USB 
device gets plugged or unplugged.

It does not seem to work with a 2.6.26 kernel - I noticed that, besides the 
eeepc_acpi module, another eeepc_laptop module gets loaded. Could somebody 
ellaborate on this eeepc_laptop kernel module? Please?

I also would like to know how this bluetooth patch would work in an older 
model (701 or 900) which does not have BT. Does anybody think that ir would 
broke the module in those models?

I'll provide the proper patches to the acpi scripts to toggle bluetooth,
