[mythtv-users] can remote frontend(s) wake the backend when needed?

I've been going through the docs for making the backend shutdown and
wake by alarm based on next recording time, etc.  All pretty
straightforward enough.  I have even gotten the backend to WOL
successfully (using the magic packet and the wakeonlan command).

But if I have remote frontends, they of course will notice when the
backend goes away and pop up the familiar "backend gone" dialog.  That
is all fine.

I wonder however, is there a way to configure a remote frontend to
(execute a script to) send a "WOL" to the backend when somebody wants to
use the FE?
