Ipod Control via Dock connector?? Answered

Does anyone know if you can control ipods functions (play/pause, fast fw, rewind, scroll, possibly vol up/down?) via the dock connector? Is there any way to do this other than taking apart ipod? Trying to make ipod controller

Edit: Does anyone know a cheap way to send specific signals to an ipod? im thinking arduino is a good choice

Thank you so much for the link.... unfortunately, I'm not good with computer programming or microcontrollers.... Does anyone know a (semi) simple way to do this? I would like to try making a smallish wireless controller, with a few buttons, and have it send a signal to the circuit connected to the ipod. It would be better if the controller was connected to the ipod instead of a computer... right now im thinking arduino might work....
