I've just tested again, and compared to a week-old build and the 4.5.4
Appimage.  The ability to control Bluetooth appears to have nothing to do
with recent changes in Subsurface or libdivecomputer.  I had Bluetooth
disabled through the KDE taskbar icon, and Subsurface couldn't power on
Bluetooth from that state.  If I enable Bluetooth through the system, then
I can power on and power off.
