[maemo-users] command-line for Bluetooth copy ?

Is there a simple command that can be used with rsync to send files 
to/from the tablet over Bluetooth ?

At home I give everything static ip addresses and names, and have SSH 
keys set up, so rsync/scp works transparently (at work, too).

I have tried using ad-hoc mode on my laptop, but if it's using managed 
mode to e.g. a hotel network that's not possible without a second NIC. My 
new laptop has Bluetooth which works nicely but only from a GUI - on the 
tablet I must move things into ~/MyDocs/ or /media/mmc* to find them, and 
I have to always send not upload/download.

(actually, I wonder why the BT implementation on Linux needed to reinvent 
the wheel, and could not just appear as another transport layer like Ethernet 
or FDDI. Then scp/ssh/smb etc. would just work.)
