Lens Control... iris?

Does anyone know what sony is going to offer in terms of the lens control jack? Would it be technically possible to control the iris? I hope so!

I asked the Sony reps this question at GV Expo last week. They had no idea, saying that only the Fujinon guys know what the lens control port can do. Sony is waiting for word from Fujinon as what it can fully do. They were thinking at least zoom control.

The two Fujinon-type controllers that are known to work with EX1 through a special adaptor (Manfrotto and Libec) are zoom -only.
