Andy, you are right that we added support for Unix-specific features, but we
added that as part of Mono.Posix.dll.  

We did not modify the surface API that must remain compatible with .NET, which
is what this patch has done.   It introduced a new enum value.

In addition, this makes the runtime bring in the bluetooth libraries,
regardless of whether someone uses it or not.    

By using a separate library --like we did with Mono.Posix.dll-- you could
create the same sockets that you need, and the dependency would be something
that only users that need the bluetooth support would take.   Not everyone

As for the sockaddr, do you have a sample of what you envision?   A good test
case is usually to try it out on .NET, what kind of changes would you need to
support it on .NET, and does it work today?
