I tried doing this exact same thing a while ago.  I was going on a five week
business trip and I wanted an easy way for users to restart the mythbackend
process from the frontend computer (seperate back & frontends).  But I
couldn't figure out a secure way to run a script as root through ssh and I
gave up.  Both my back and frontends run ubuntu so there is no dedicated
root account.  It would probably be easier if you have a dedicated root
