Bug Description

Binary package hint: indicator-application

While having the bluetooth always visible is a security risk to some degree, it could be useful to keep the user informed constantly about that state by changing the appearance of bluetooth icon in indicator while device is visible. The same applies when a connection is active, there could be another icon for this, in similar way that Network manager does it already.

<https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Bluetooth>: "The title of the menu should be a skeletal Bluetooth icon if Bluetooth is off, and a lozenge Bluetooth icon if Bluetooth is on."
