Yes I already looked for that, answer is no.  So I guess I need to figure out how to get it added there.

I did find this http://it.toolbox.com/blogs/locutus/mission-impossible-connect-bluetooth-headset-to-linux-35365 so will work through 
this to see if any of its relevant, however pairing in 10.04 is quite different to back then, all can be done via GUI.

Searching the archives draws minimal suggesting there's not been much interest for BT headsets - or was it just too hard?  Most 
interest has perhaps understandably been on BT remotes.

Once having Alsa-bluetooth as an option I guess one has to go thru settings to turn it on and off.

Maybe there's a way to automate it somewhat, perhaps a desktop icon that toggles the two sound options.
