I really like that idea.

However, are you sure that the control file is *not* created on the 701 (nor 
900, nor 904)?

Just send me a 900 and a 904 to test with, and I'll break all the code you 
want :-P

Anyway, having (working) built-in bluetooth and sticking another USB BT dongle 
seems like a stupid idea to me, anyway.

That's fine for me, but I guess that, at some poing, we'll be abusing debconf. 
e.g. "I want some service (gpsd) restarted whenever I toggle bluetooth, let's 
make it configurable". I still have to read a lot of debian guidelines,

You're welcome ;-)
