Ahh... cool! 

BTW, I found that an iPhone 3G is able to expose a bluetooth PAN network
with AT&T in the USA.  My failed attempts that I talked about on IRC
were with a first generation iPhone.

As soon as I can get my hands on a phone that exposes PAN then I will
give this a try.  I've already landed the bluetooth technology switches
in the Carrick master branch, so it should 'just work'.
