   This really seemed to work.. finally.  It was a bit of a stutter start.  
But now I've got it up.  Also seems to be affected by how these headphones 
are 'multi-ipoint' (if I have the term correct) and can connect to both phone 
and Nokia at the same time.  Need to read up on BT and the rswitch feature it 

  At this point I would say however that it's a 10 on a 10 scale.  I also can 
see how the input feed to the BT headphones works essentially it seems that 
alsa output is redirected to a2dpd.  

  Lots of thoughts to play with.  Oh and on the battery front.  Wanna watch it 
really drain.  Try being ssh'd in (wifi) and BT connected at the same time!  

  Additional info for others out there the AVRCP (The protocol that allows you 
to remote control software over BT) seems to all function as it's supposed to 
using the controls on my headphones, and doing the the tap,press, hold tongue 
left then right dance I can skip songs, raise and lower volume etc.
