The ideal solution would be to run bluetooth only when bluetooth
hardware is present, the same when applicable to all other services.

About the defaults - If/When should we reselect what will be the
defaults? I forget which release it was planned for, but I do remember
seeing a page on the Wiki at one point about disabling sendmail and the
rpc* services, but it never seemed to have happened. I think it would be
a good change to make for F8. A small one, but a change nonetheless.
