Are the keycodes unique enough that you can just put the keymaps for both
remotes into the same table? I.E. when you wrote your keymaps, did you have
to remove some of the others to get it to work, or was that just for
cleanliness? Otherwise, we'd need to have multiple tables and choose which
to use based on which remote is being used.

Oh, and do stick around, Karel, someone will need to test the result.

BTW, does anyone know whether the probe function actually needs to check
whether the product and vendor IDs match the device? I've seen docs that
imply yes, but many drivers don't check, and I feel stupid iterating thru the
table if no.

Have fun,
