Hi Kalle,
Thanks for the reply.  Do you know if it is possible to use 
wpa_supplicant (I realize I might have to port it myself), just 
wondering about driver compatibility.  Otherwise, maybe something like 
gnome network manager to wrap it to get support for the BT DUN.

I saw the blog post and the feature request on maemo - any idea of 
whether this is in scope for a future release?
