Target version:swap repos with Bluetooth and Bonjour


If FDroid has the BLUETOOTH_ADMIN permission, it can change the Bluetooth device name, i.e. the name that other devices see when they are browsing for Bluetooth devices. That would make it easy to find the device in question, but might be weird for people who use Bluetooth a lot. It could then change the name back to the original name.

This might mess up the pairing, and have other odd ramifications, and it might just not be a good idea.

I think we should skip this idea. It has too many problems.
