[Pkg-bluetooth-maintainers] Bug#382771: bluez-utils: please define possible d-bus pin helpers

Package: bluez-utils
Version: 3.1-3.1
Severity: important


You say in the changelog that bluez-pin is no longer needed. This is clearly 
wrong if you wanted interactive pin entry:
- bluez-pin already used d-bus, maybe only needs an update
- kdebluetooth' pin app doesn't work anymore

Is there any working replacement for an X desktop? Or did you just introduce a 
bluetooth version that is unusable for X users? (Hint: Yes, you did.)

So I define the goal of this bug, either:
- provide a workable interactive pin entry program for X, or
- clearly tell by Recommends which package can handle that

And no, passkey-agent is no acceptable solution for X users, at least 
according to manpage (and it's also missing, see other bug report).
