Qmplayer should ideally not need any question at all. On all the other
phones that I have tested, all sounds, including message
received/ringing/music/alarms/gps speech/3rd party radio apps/J2ME apps,
etc go through the BT headset automatically once A2DP is connected. Not
sure why Qmplayer should even be aware of BT at all.

Selecting BT in *each* program would be a pain, can't we just route
everything with alsa? Pulseaudio at least here on my laptop does that
well, so maybe this isn't even alsa related.

On all my phones only one "Connect" button is displayed. I can't even
select services (though I would want that). Probably it's that way to
avoid user confusion, e.g. a regular user would not know what A2DP even
is. Also, my phones do connect automatically if I set the device to
trusted.I have found no such options in QtMoko, so that would also be
something nice to have.
