There are some OEM radios with MBus, see my original posting.

Not on my radio, I'm very sorry about this.

Currently none, but I'll work on this. I'm hesistant right now because I'm
not sure on which way is minimum intrusive to Rockbox.

About MBus, yes:
> A remote plugin api could be great...
I agree, but the use case is so exotic that we'd have a hard time to
convince "the officials".
An idea would be something like a compile-time option (doesn't have to be a
runtime plugin) to replace the cable remote with my M-Bus or infrared remote.
Other people are working on VW radio adaptation, a serial keyboard or
networking was also an idea. Lots of things to abuse the remote pin.
