This is the file I wanted, I asked for the wrong one =)

Directly from the LIRC documentation at http://www.lirc.org/html/configure.html#lircd.conf_format

tells the program what shall happen if a key is repeated. A value of zero tells the program to ignore repeated keys. Any other positive value 'n' tells the program to pass the config string every 'n'-th time to the according application, when a key is repeated. The default for repeat is zero. 
tells the program to ignore the specified number of key repeats before using the "repeat" configuration directive above. This is used to prevent double triggers of events when using a fast repeat rate. A value of zero, which also is the default, will disable the delay function. 

I have my arrow keys set to repeat 4, I think.  Every once and awhile, I will get a double event when I didn't want one, but that might mean I need to mess with the delay option.  I hadn't noticed that option before, thanks for making me look at the docs =)

Further lirc specific questions should be taken over to the Lirc lists.
