Technically, it does at least mostly fit (though some transceivers also do
output), but I'd not merge them together. Lots of users are still slightly
baffled by remotes that appear as pure input devices, so I'd wager they
wouldn't look for newer remote drivers in a -input package. I'd probably
go with something along the lines of lbm-remotes (even though technically,
the driver is for the receiver/transmitter/transceiver hardware, not
actually for the remote itself...).
