I and my students don't just run scripts, but full custom C code.

How about reverse engineering?

I found a function in the elph130 firmware (at FF022068) which based on error messages allowed me to tentatively identify functions like socket(), setsockopt(), bind(), select() etc. Assuming these behave approximately like there traditional counterparts, getting some basic communication going shouldn't be out of reach of a motivated student.

I haven't tried them yet, but given that the relevant functions seem to be there I probably will soon.

Further discussion of this should probably go in the chdk forum, may be straying a bit far off topic for dpreview.
