ok, so I built a new package and added it to the repo, it's called sonyps3remote.  You can install it via gslapt.
You will need to use vasm to activate the bluetooth service as this application uses the bluetooth connectivity of the remote only.

I can't test it. Don't have a ps3 remote so let me know how it goes.
