For those who prefer the extra complexity of getting a combo keyboard/mouse
receiver to behave as a single remote control under LIRC,
I've now copied those links above (thanks) to the tail end of my web page for others.

The idea here though, was to have something dead simple to set up,
without LIRC, without having to deal with arcane/undocumented kernel IR-decoding,
and without having to fuss over the split personality (mouse/keyboard) of the receiver.
