Sharing Internet connection over bluetooth in Ubuntu

Me and my girlfriend are staying in a hotel here in Sha Tin, Hong Kong. Since the hotel only allow one computer per room connected to the Internet at the time - I found out it would be a nice time to look into Internet connection sharing over bluetooth. There are some documentation on how to set up PAN in Linux, so the prosess should be pretty straightforward. One posting I found mention some software called "Blueman". Turns out Blueman can do all the work for me with the click of a button.

It's even in Launchpad, so I can install it using apt. I start the applet, go into "Local Services", enable NAP, and.. it just works! This is getting too easy!
