Im fine with the changes except with this thing with
org.bluez.FMRadio, IMO that should belong to the module that requires
it beside I don't see us accepting this interface as part of the core
daemon, so this probably need to be inside the maemo6 plugin which
should only be loaded for its platform. This way we also put pressure
in having the hardware/driver exposing everything properly, otherwise
it has to do its dirty work themselves.
