How to change the current song from the headset in the N900

Like some people i got a N900 during the Meego Conference, so far I’m liking it and already have a few ideas of development things for it. On the other side I’m trying to force me to use it as my regular phone so i can show others the greatness of a real Linux stack based phone, the main problem I’ve found is that my Nokia-Symbian phone headset has very useful next/previous/pause/play song buttons that do not seem to work on the N900. Does anyone know how to get this to work?

Headset control?

Wondering about that myself and so quickly tried all the possibly compatible headsets I own.
A Nokia AD-54 wired audio controller isn't working.
The buttons on a stereo bluetooth headset seems to work (the audio certainly does) but since I own a Sony-Ericsson HBH-DS200 which only has a play/pause I don't know if all functions are supported.
Anyway, if you want to take a little risk: I absolutely recommend bluetooth stereo headsets I would get this one: BH-214

I owned a BH-905. All function works well with the bluetooth. But when wired, it's sound only, no control.

@Damnshock: Thanks that seems to be mostly ok :-)
