The advantage is avoiding weird APIs. I expect foo_new() to create a
new instance of foo, not to sometimes create a new instance and
sometimes do something else. Am I the only one who finds the proposed
API weird?

I don't think there's need to call pa_bluetooth_native_backend_new()
from pa_bluetooth_discovery_set_ofono_running() anyway, so there
shouldn't be need to compromise on simplicity either. Your patch
removes the only place where y->native_backend was being set to NULL
during y->ofono_backend's life time (when y->ofono_backend is NULL,
pa_bluetooth_discovery_set_ofono_running() won't get called).
