I'm new to CHDK script writing but seems like it would be easy to modify one of the intervalometer scripts with a flag and conditional statement that changed said flag so that only once you would get a picture with your desired settings.  The rest of the loop would skip over that operation because of the flag.

What method do you use to sandwich all the photos together after the fact?
