Description of problem:
It would be great if system-config-network supported creating
network connections over Bluetooth.
http://bluez.sourceforge.net/contrib/HOWTO-PAN describes
methods one can connect PC's via bluetooth. There are other
ways that makes sense to support as well, e.g. running ppp over bluetooth,
I believe that's commonly used for accessing IP networks through 
buletooth capable cell phones.

I created another bug (bug #131614)for GSM dial-up/GPRS over bluetooth

I dont know if this will help, but here is some documentation I found
