Indeed.  However I could probably live without gnome-bluetooth if
blueman were still available.

pulseaudio-module-bluetooth though.  Would it work with Bluez4?  Would
it need a compile to do so?  I wonder how you make that a functional
downgrade that users can select if they still need Bluez4.

Indeed.  I suspect the same.  Perhaps gnome-bluetooth could be
uninstalled and replace with blueman without too much heartburn.  It's
the other packages that get troublesome.  A
pulseaudio-module-bluetooth-bluez4 as an alternative BT module for PA?
Something similar for NM?  It's starting to get ugly and perhaps the
effort spent doing that would be better put towards:

https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=73325#c5

But either way, it does seem a pretty serious regression.  Although
maybe you and me, David, are the only F20 users using HSP bluetooth
headsets.  :-/
