I don't know who in the end decided to move bluetoothd-service-audio into its own package. That is totally stupid and makes no real sense. The audio service can exist without any ALSA or GStreamer plugin and could as so be perfectly part of bluez-utils package. Having separate bluez-alsa and bluez-gstreamer packages would have made sense in my eyes.

It was done in Debian, for reasons beyond me, but I decided to merge it in in Ubuntu as well to make merges from Debian easier later on.

(And I have uploaded a fixed package for this bug just now.)

It makes sense to split bluez-alsa and bluez-gstreamer, because their dependency chain is big. However if you use ALSA you don't wanna have the dependencies on GStreamer and vice-versa. Also an embedded system with SCO over PCM (like the Nokia tablets) might wanna use only the audio service and don't wanna drag in the dependencies for any of these packages. The Debian people really need to start talking to me before they do these things :(
