Bulb Ramping a K30


Is there a way to manually bulb ramp a K30 for holy grail stile timelapse? I mean, changing exposure parameters in realtime remotely?
I'm using an external intervalometer and controller but I don't want to touch the camera while I'm shooting the sequence.
Any idea?

Here's a truly vintage post that might be relevant to the K30: New type of intervalometer -

Apparently a preferred way to do this is to externally control the exposure length in B mode. That should work for just about any camera as long as the shortest exposure is not tooooo short.
