bluetooth.device.conf name was chosen because this file contains
default system wide configuration parameters for bluetooth _device_,
not bluetooth as whole.

as i tried to describe in the commit log, overrides for specific
device go into /etc/bluetooth/FOO.conf, where FOO is the name of
bluetooth device driver, i.e. ubt0, btccc1 etc.

> I prefer latter one like /etc/defaults/pccard.conf.

please take no offence, but there was a long thread on
freebsd-bluetooth@ and freebsd-rc@

"Re: [RFC] rc.d integration for the bluetooth subsystem"

where i asked for feedback and posted several possible variants before
committing this. there were only four people on the thread (brooks and
yar were most active).

if you feel like there is better way to do this, please join the
discussion. we can always change things to make them right.
