Strange files, diagnostic/debug mode, easter eggs, etc.

Looking through some dumps, I can see all kind of interesting looking files and functions (or parameters) that indicate there might be some sort of debug mode, where things are logged.
It would only make sense for the Canon engineers to have a secret menu where they can set the exposure time, aperture, ISO, stuff like that.
Did anyone try to find more about those things? For example, how did you guys find about the ver.req trick?

Oh, ok, I thought someone disassembled the keyboard handling routine and found some magic keypresses or something :)
