Wrappers & Classes for interfacing with bluetooth via BlueZ 5 from Mono via DBus

Uses a patched dbus-sharp for dbus calls that fixes properties, as well as allowing receive for unix file descriptors via socket control messages. Support for socket control messages come from using a patched mono build..... so yeah, this is a pain to set up right now, hopefully once these changes get packaged up for mono and dbus-sharp this will be much easier to use.

NDesk.DBus Documentation: http://www.ndesk.org/DBus_Documentation (but this is very old)

Mono patch to support socket control messages: https://github.com/mono/mono/pull/2097

If you're poking around in DBus I highly recommend a tool such as d-feet, and watch syslog filtered by "bluetooth" to see what kind of errors bluez is spitting out.

To use any of the gatt interfaces, you must run bluetoothd with the experimental flag turned on (-E) or they will not be available.
