maybe the solution would be to configure your frontend to use the rc... so if 
you've got 3 clients (frontends) registered only one configurable machine can 
use the frontent, but this leads me back to my initial comment that the 
backend has got to get the rc-input either natively or thorugh 
keyboard-command and send it back to the frontend, which will interpet the 
commands... or let the backend interpret them and send the changes to the 
frontend, either way!
