If your definition of "a big pain in the ass" is "something that makes
my Myth system work" then I agree. MythTV would be a lot less useful
without the much-appreciated efforts from both of those teams.

Nothing worthwhile comes without effort.

IMHO the real problem is that the Linux kernel itself has become such a
moving target that it is hard for groups like LIRC/IVTV to keep up with
the efforts of Linus and Co. to "not be bored".
