Whatever do for signal strength, including the pretty panel applets that
display it, please could we try to make them work with Bluetooth too. If
there's a WiFi-specific Ethtool op which returns signal strength,
perhaps we can make the BNEP code handle that too, returning 'hcitool lq
<bdaddr>' results in an appropriate form.
