Despite other's saying it's not necessary, I fully agree with you that
it was the most convenient way for me to access it, and I really don't
want to reconfigure my remote to work around it.

However, you may be in luck. If you don't mind compiling your myth
from source code, I'm about to make a patch available that allow you
to replicate this sort of functionality in the theme. Based on some of
the posts I've seen, I fully expect the patch will not be accepted
into the main tree. Personally, that's no big deal as I've typically
got about a dozen custom patches applied to my myth builds.

If you are interested, I'll post more details once I have it available.
