Neither oFono nor BlueZ will enable the plugins for HFP support unless
DBus-1.3 is installed (or alternatively a hacked dbus-1.2 with file
descriptor passing support)
Denis is right. For example, my ubuntu 10.04 has dbus-1.3.0 so HFP works smoothly on my
laptop. I remember there's someone has a hacked dbus-1.2 with fd passing support. It
does work but I would recommend you use dbus-1.3.

The connection initiator is actually irrelevant. You just need to
make sure that BlueZ has paired with your device and the
HandsfreeGateway interface is created for your device.

If you want this, then you will need to eventually write your
that will manage the RFCOMM and SCO sockets. Today, BlueZ
does this part...
Right. See bluez/audio/unix.c for BlueZ part SCO code that cooperate with pulseaudio.
BlueZ sends SCO fd to pulseaudio via UNIX type socks.
