Description Bastien Nocera 2008-02-27 14:29:24 UTC
In transfer_started_cb() you should call another function which will:
- show the status icon
- show a notification bubble with the device's proper name (use the bluetooth address in the meanwhile if unsure how to do it)
- notification should have accept/reject buttons, and time out, rejecting the transfer after a 30 seconds wait
- hide the status icon if no other transfer is going on, once the notification is dimissed/hidden

It would be nice if we could say: "accept/always accept/reject", and use the Bluetooth properties to be able to remove the "always accept" (the device is trusted, but not paired, and would show up in the known devices).
