That is an interesting idea.  In any project there seems to be some
interesting low-hanging fruit that can be grabbed with little effort
and cost.  It just occurred to me that there the an IR remote
controller might be in that category.  The cost of parts for adding an
IR led transmitter would be very low if an unused IO pin were still
available.  One could then run a universal remote applet.  The
advantage is always having your personal remote in your pocket or
around your neck.  It would allow folks to have a universal remote in
situations where they normally wouldn't have one, such as hotel rooms,
at friends houses etc.

Bang per buck, it seems like a simple IR system for the NEO would be a
lot of fun and perhaps even help to sell the phone to the masses.
