bluetooth on MDV is improving fast, with 10.0 I had to hack *everything* up from the shell, with 10.1 at least some modules got autoloaded, with 2005 I can just plug in my bluetooth USB key and immediately transfer files to and from my bluetooth phone. Yay for progress :D. Setting it up as a wireless modem over bluetooth is still trickier, though, I should try and get that into drakconnect for 2006. *goes off to poke someone*
