I thought I remembered something about a userspace driver... Don't worry about
whether or not its released in an lirc tarball though. The code headed to the
kernel is cvs head based already.

I take it the userspace driver is the commandir.{c,h} bits vs. the old
lirc_cmdir.{c,h} bits being the old driver. D'oh. Its been sitting right under
my nose... So yeah, we'll drop the lirc_cmdir bits, and roll with just the
commandir bits.

Side bar: wish I'd had more time to read over *all* the code, rather than
focusing so much on just the checkpatch cleanups, but I think it was better to
get this out here and get some momentum built up anyhow...

That would be most excellent. I'd definitely love to get some, will drop you a
line off-list.
