Can you find other lirc configs for the same model remote (even if you
use your own, you can just bring over the toggle_bit_mask).  After that,
there's trial and error.  Or as a final hack, just recording both
signals (the initial and toggled signal) so you have two definitions for
the button (a la
http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/mythtv/users/181566#181566 ). 
Though, really, if you can get both codes for one button, calculating
the toggle_bit_mask is a rather simple mathematical exercise.
