Couldn't have put it better myself. LIRC is a very powerful app, handling
many (any?) types of remote, and a range of receiver devices from simple
dumb serial line devices, to PIC based devices which have a certain amount
of intelligence built in. It means for one that you can build a very low
cost receiver, and use any old tv/video remote that you have hanging around.
Those who want something a bit more sophisticated - well it works for them

The HID option is a good idea though, would save a lot of messing around for
the novice user.

I think you mean, "Way too complex for someone who doesn't use it to its 
full potential."  :)
