Just went through this myself.  Personally, I don't like the symlink idea.

I ended up modifying  /etc/init.d/lircd and changed the daemon lircd 
command in the start section.
This forces the lircd daemon to use /dev/lirc0.
Looks like this:
         if [ -f /etc/lircd.conf ]; then
                 echo -n $"Starting infrared remote control daemon: "
                 daemon lircd -d /dev/lirc0

This is really wierd because everything worked fine until I rebooted after 
I installed it.
