I'd be happy working on an AirTurn Bluetooth driver given the hardware ;)
That's probably not even necessary other than as a transparent ploy to get the gadget for free considering that, according to their website, from the computer's POV the thing basically amounts to a Bluetooth keyboard with a PgUp and a PgDown key. Looks useful if a bit pricey.
The Pageflip Cicada appears to offer the same functionality but somewhat cheaper, and even mentions Linux as a supported operating system (not that this is a big thing once you have the Bluetooth HID interface down).
Disclaimer: I haven't been in the same room with either of the devices, let alone used one to turn sheet music pages.
