As mentioned (applies to bluez-gnome as well) - blueman brings audio,
input and dial-up support and some advanced features like access point
setup. Since supporting the basic PAN and file transfer features too,
blueman completely replaces bluez-gnome. The author tries very hard to
ensure compatibility.

For accessing the system settings. I hope future versions will introduce
another solution for that. As I said, the author promised to distance
from gnome and replace/remove some gnome dependencies, but that process
will take some time.

No. It's GTK only. I think bluez's own means include sufficient command
line tools (like hcitool). Don't they?
