I'm afraid I'd only give this half marks.
Eg it doesn't say what is supposed to be happening on the phone.
Also it seems very Ubuntu specific.
Eg under my Fedora 6 system the file /etc/bluetooth/hcid.conf
is provided by the bluez-utils package,
and does not contain any entry for pin-helper,
nor is there a program /usr/bin/bluez-pin on this system.
In spite of this, gnokii works fine with bluetooth.
Actually, I just looked at a Ubuntu machine,
and there wasn't an entry for pin_helper in /etc/bluetooth/hcid.conf
Maybe this refers to an older version of bluez?
But I'd prefer an account which says exactly what commands are given
on the computer, and exactly what effect this has on a particular phone.
I would find a short description of how the PIN system works helpful, too.
