Apple's remote controls more than FrontRow

Mat on Macs has recently made a discovery: The Apple remote that shipped with his iMac can be used to control more than FrontRow. Specifically, he found that play/pause, chapter forward/back and 4x fast forward/back all work with DVD Player (play and pause even work if DVD Player is not the frontmost application). Also, his remote worked with Quicktime Player and adjusted the system volume. That's pretty cool. Now I want one of those iMacs even more.
