Definitely! For now I could simply call a oneliner script containing
just "killall mythfrontend" and that would do the idle frontend quit :-)

Well, it could work if the frontend was able to ping the backend and
wait gracefully whenever it doesn't respond (since when the frontend
machine resumes from sleep it sends WoL to mythbackend and then waits
for up to two minutes until the backend fully boots up).
