    I have already agreed to implement this in lircd.
    The reason why I didn't until now is that there never was any reguest for
    such a feature from real users of LIRC. This is often suggested by people
    from an architectural viewpoint, because it's nice to have a unified
    interface through the input layer. But if you start using LIRC you usually
    realise quite fast that simple key events are not enough to build a remote
    controlled home entertainment system for example.
    But if enough people want this feature, it will be in the next release.
