CHDK on SX1 and SX10

It seems the the development of the chdk to add new features to the SX series is well under way.
I just saw the nice timelapse video rexburke did:
Taken with a Canon SX1IS, running CHDK (still Beta) and the Ultra Interval script.

Shot 300 frames at 5 second intervals in Av mode with video compiled using PhotoLapse (freeware) at 15fps

I tried it at 30 fps for smoother viewing but the clouds wizz by too fast. Maybe better to have shot it at 2~3 second intervals.
