    Just bear in mind that with the current in-kernel code, users do *not
    * have to manually select the RC code to use if they are using the
    default remote that shipped with the product. This helps alot for
    those unfamiliar with LIRC, since their product "works out of the box"
    with the remote the product came with. I agree though, that the user
    should be able to easily change the RC to be used if he/she decides to
    use a remote other than the default.
