I don't have much use for a fancy TV remote, but I would very much like
to use my phone as a "remote" for my Squeezebox music system
(  It would be great to be able to frob the
web UI while sitting on the couch, since that's a lot more expressive
than slowly crawling through the two-line display on the box using the
IR remote.

Just because you don't want to do something with your phone doesn't mean
that the rest of us share your feelings.  This is open source, and it
moves forward because people work on what interest them.  The end result
is something that's stronger for everyone.
