That an IR receiver usually only comes with a TV capture card, and given 
that such a card is a kind of multimedia thing, users would look in 
kdemultimedia when searching for something to handle the TV remote
(even if you use it to control other things that aren't the TV)

You're not the first one to have that idea. But that has nothing to do with 
the fact that 90% of the users would look in kdemultimedia when looking 
for something related to IR.
