Yeah, LIRC has already moved to a standard LIRC namespace.  Still for 
anything more than simple media players (i.e. for MythTV as opposed to 
MPlayer or xine), without knowing exactly which buttons (and how many) 
are available on a remote, finding the appropriate mapping of those 
buttons is impossible--which is why you will need per-remote 
configurations for MythTV (whether they be ~/.lircrc or MythTV key 
bindings themes).
