Sorry didn't actually read that far. 

I'd suggest that if changes were made to the lirc support that it would be a 
good idea to map directly to Myth actions instead of keys. It's been 
discussed in the past, I didn't pay much attention at the time but I seem to 
recall some resistance to that idea. Still it would allow both  keyboard and 
remote to be configured differently without a making lirc configuration too 
complicated. It would even be easier to code (he says without actually 
looking at the current stuff).

It would also be nice to see remote key config brought under Myth's own UI, 
much like MythControls allows now for keyboard config.

I'm not suggesting that you do both these things, I'm just raising them for 
discussion. I might even do it myself when I've finished my other tasks.
