Bug Description

When bluetooth network is created by bluez, it creates bnep0 network interface.

That interface is ignored by Network Manager (no auto dhcp, not in the list, not in the creation options). Interfaces can be configurated manually (sudo dhclient bnep0), but NM ignores it completely.

Steps to reproduce:

1) Pair xubuntu with android device (in my case Samsung S3)
2) Initiate network access (network access point) on that device

Expected behavior:
NM or silently initialize interface, or just show it as option to initialize network

Actual behavior:
complete ignorance.
