Can you currently control with script:
- drive mode
- TV bracketing value in continuous mode
- other values in 'Bracketing in continuous mode' menu
?

Only with button presses, I'd guess. The propcase is noted as read only for Digic III+ at least: http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/Propertycase

No. If you want to script bracketing, you'd need to do the whole process in script.
Don't forget what the H stands for.

With the german branch (CHDKDE - http://www.wirklemms.de/chdk/forum/autobuild.php) ) you can read & write most entries from the CHDK config file, with get_config_value() and set_config_value() - a nice feature, from CHDKLover...

Possibility ? - yes, of course, should be no problem !

Interest ? - don't know; it's a popular feature in CHDK-DE, used for lots of things, e.g. easily using multiple configurations, changing grids from within a script etc.

The feature consumes some additional RAM, but not much (~ 600 bytes for the Lua-only implementation), should work on all ports.

This topic was moved, so probably it didn't get enough attention in 'Feature Requests'.
