I'm quite sure I have seen KEY_GO, but can't locate it at all today, it's 
closer to two years go I looked into what options was for keys, could also 
be that I may have mixed it with XF86Go form XKeysymDB.

I have run into the problem that having two or more tools open that is 
handled by lircd, they all are affected by key pressed on the remote, but 
maybe there are ways to control this in the settings and really don't 
belong in this maillist, but it had been good if all keys had been 
"valid", so each user could choose how they want to have things. As I have 
some "none valid" keys on my multimedia keyboard, I guss this is kind of 
a X issue.
