While it makes no attempt to model/simulate the camera actions (like taking a photo or changing the focus) my interactive development environment for CHDK does let you run scripts on a PC, Mac or Linux box.See http://www.zenoshrdlu.com/kapstuff/zubdb.html
Too many unknowns.For example, look at the first few hundred instructions executed at startup, the camera writes to a whole range of IO ports that we have very little idea what they do.We know very little about the Digic processor - how would you simulate that?How would you simulate the hardware like the zoom, focus, aperture and shutter? From what we do know timing can be an important factor and they are also inter-dependant (changing zoom, changes focus and aperture) - your simulator would need to somehow cater for all this. The camera does many checks in the code and shuts down if things are not quite right.While not impossible (Canon probably has something like this), it would require a huge effort.Phil.

I'd help ..... if I had time

Hope some group would make a prefect visual camera simulator that simulates each camera with it's individual firmware.
