This has come up before (and it would be a nice feature to have), so I'll just 
start out by saying that for such a plugin to be accepted into the main myth 
source, the server side will need to be:
 a) open source
 b) run on mythtv.org

Also, please note that this really wouldn't be possible as a 'plugin', it 
would need much deeper hooks than are readily available with the existing 
plugin interface.
