I have already agreed to implement this in lircd.
The reason why I didn't until now is that there never was any reguest for
such a feature from real users of LIRC. This is often suggested by people
from an architectural viewpoint, because it's nice to have a unified
interface through the input layer. But if you start using LIRC you usually
realise quite fast that simple key events are not enough to build a remote
controlled home entertainment system for example.
But if enough people want this feature, it will be in the next release.
