You could use a simple USB switch like this one :-

With SDM, the remote switch is enabled by default.

With CHDK, you may have to enable it in the menu.

You could also use a script which translates some other button into shoot.
Don't forget what the H stands for.

Actually thinking about this more, you'd have to run the script all the time (with autostart) otherwise you wouldn't be able to start it, since that also requires the shutter button.

I don't know of any existing script that does this, you would have to write it. A loop that does wait_click and does either halfpress or fullpress depending which button is pressed.
Don't forget what the H stands for.
