I really hope this accepted with 11.3.  It just took me a couple of hours to realize that my old lirc config wouldn't work in 11.2 that I used in 11.1.  The device was now /dev/lirc0 instead of /dev/lirc like it was in 11.1.

I think this is pretty important.  LiRC is one of the last classes of common hardware that cannot be configured using a GUI in openSUSE.

Configuring LIRC is quite complex and a simple YaST module cannot cover all possibilities. So we should focus on the basic functionality here. 
Here is my proposal:
Basic functionlity:
- read/write /etc/sysconfig/lirc settings - set lircd driver, module, device...
- select a remote controller model from lirc-remote package
or start irrecord and create a new config for the user's controller
- enable/disable lirc system service
Editing user's config is very complex because ~/.lircrc (or /etc/lircrc) can contain e.g.
include ~/.lircd/mplayer
Is that sufficient for most users? Please, comment.

You don't have to add all the features at once. For 11.3/12.0 you could give the most basic features, present in /etc/sysconfig already and then you could add more complex feature one by another.
