Comment 8 for bug 837196

Also, in that upstream bug the gnome dev seems to think a Bluetooth name must always be the same as the system's hostname. (https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=658154, "No, and we're not interested in supporting that.")

Ignoring for a moment the condescending attitude that is infesting Gnome nowadays, I have a usecase that seems to require being able to change the bluetooth name (unless I overlooked something, feel free to correct me). I have two different Ubuntu installations on the same laptop, one for work, one for private use. They have different names. In earlier versions of Ubuntu I tried just connecting to both with different names via bluetooth, which didn't work. Changing the bluetooth names to be identical on both installations seemed to (mostly) work. It seems that this would no longer be supported.
