    You could already change the keymap...

    But only for the 6 buttons supported.

    I see very little benefits myself (I mean, unless you're adamant that
    you want to use a remote that's not intended for that computer, but we
    already have lirc user-space driver for doing that), and it would remove
    metadata from the events, so we couldn't do "remote filtering" (each
    remote has a semi-random UID, which gets passed in with the events).

    When the appleir patch was finally accepted (which means I need to get
    off my arse and do the changes Oliver mentioned), working on UID
    filtering is next on my list of TODOs.
