FS#5832 - no "remote" in iPod?

Well, I am not completely sure this is a bug, perhaps someone can explain and chastise me to their heart's content... What Rockbox website says, is that remote control is supported for iPod. Well, I use the iJet wireless remote control. It has a receiver that plugs into the headphones sockets on top of the iPod (the receiver has a headphone socket too so that is not lost). The transmitter sends the signals to the receiver, that part is out of iPod's control, then the receiver does "something" with the headphone interface, to make the iPod behave as if its button were pressed.
It works like a dream, but with Rockbox, it does not. I press a button on the transmitter, nothing happens. Why? Are only remotes wired to the bottom supported? Are only Apple remotes supported? Or is this a DOA feature?

Reason for closing: Invalid
Additional comments about closing: not a bug.
Additionally, when reading this task as a feature request it\'s a duplicate of the often requested support for ipod accessories.
