Is it possible that Magic Lantern recognizes the difference between the signal of an IR-remote control and the shutter button?

Because I was doing some intervalometer shots, the camera set to "10s self-timer / IR remote" because I wanted to start the intervalometer with my remote control.

When Intervalometer is off the camera instantly takes a picture as soon as I press the IR remote button, self timer starts when I use the camera shutter button.

 With intervalometer on the self timer starts counting down and continues doing so with every further picture, no matter if I use IR remote or shutter button.

So can it be done that when the camera receives an IR signal that the self timer won't start when intervalometer is activated and that this value will be saved as long as intervalometer is running?  (to prevent the self timer from counting down before every picture?)

I hope someone understands what I mean, sorry for my english.

I'm quite sure that the IO chip makes the remote signal appear like a standard button press to ML (so it's not doable I suppose)
