iphone / ipod touch as remote liveview and other ideas

I'm new here to CHDK. But here some feture requests / idea's

My dream-versions:

For my current cammera:
Canon EOS 30D:
- interface layout mockups: nikon / canon / Pentax / Samsung / Fuji / others...
- ability to have 2 firmwares installed. Switch by dialling ON/OFF mode (the step in between, I currently never use)
- customation from a nice interface on Mac or PC (from a browser-app would be fine)
- customisable menu
- ability to tune the creative auto modes to self set modes (like bracketing of 5 frames in place of Landscape)
- live histogram
- more bracketing options, up to 9 frames.
- shoot a bracket of 9 pictures with different exposures without the miror flipping down. (starts after 2s option)
- timelapse with lot of features. So I can set up my camera at the evening to shoot the sun-rising.
- for my animal in landscape pictures it would be cool to have the camera shooting frames when there comes movement in sight.
- pictbridge button could be the button to toggle mirror lockup ON/OFF.


For my dream-camera:
Canon EOS 5D mII or 1Ds MIV
( some features from above)
- longer video
- ability to shoot video in only 5 fps or  15 fps (for time-lapse like movies) -> maybe in higher than HD resolution???
- apple or other remote support
- able to connect a phone to let the shutter go by sms or...

For about any  live-view DSLR camera with wireless transmitter:
- Full iPhone / ipod touch control with liveview over WIFI. Only sending screen-resolution video /stills to make operation fast and fluent.

hold it man, you're asking for too much...
chdk is a free, noncommercial  "addon firmware",
so the developers made this in their free time and not for money(i hope)

most of the developers owns POWERSHOT, not EOS
developers must have phisical acces to the camera, mostly for testing purposes

canon keeps their sourcecodes better than NASA, so they need to reverse engineer the original firmare which is a very-very-very-very-very slow process (needs a lot of programming skill, it's boring, so it takes months)

btw... we even don't know how to acces the usb interface:))
