Using Face Dection to take a picture or start movie mode

Hello
I am new to the board and CHDK, so forgive me if i am posting in the wrong place.
I have installed CHDK on my S5IS and it is great.
I have read and searched everthing on the forums and cant find if what i want to do
is possible, or if it can be included in a future release of CHDK.

What i would like to do is have a setting in CHDK or a CHDK script where the
camera would ONLY take a picture or activate movie mode if a
persons face moves into the frame, ignoring other motion
in the image.

Is this possible?

Thanks for any help

This is not currently possible. Might be possible for someone with good ARM reverse engineering skills.
Don't forget what the H stands for.

Actually, that is feasible on cameras that already have face detection

for example, LjL implemented it here, with some tricks:
