Doesn't ir-keytable support setting custom-created keymaps?  If so, I 
don't have a problem using ir-keytable to do it.  I am not skilled 
enough to add a toggle to ir-kbd-i2c to allow non-Hauppauge remotes, but 
I'll try commenting out the offending code and compiling a custom 
version to test feasibility.  I'll report back when I get the chance 
(probably this weekend).
