I think it would be easier to fix the bluetooth (current hid) driver. I
think you already implemented the bluetooth handling in gnome 3.12 and
3.13, but having an uniform way of accessing the LEDs/OLEDs would be

I tried i4oled-gui last week or so, and patching g-s-d was enough. That
was a good idea to rely on gnome internals for your tool :)
