Thanks - I was hoping for something that would work with bash/sh - 
but this is a good start.
After installing python, I get:

$ simple-agent hci0 00:1E:45:8B:2A:33
Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "/usr/local/bin/simple-agent", line 3, in <module>
     import gobject
ImportError: No module named gobject

I guess this means that either bluez-4.11 should be compiled against 
python, or (more likely) I need some kind of python glib module?
