I created a module for mythweb to allow access to the backend mythxml
interface.  There is some level of security (i.e. a 'key') but I would
advise using HTTPS to secure it better.


I have tried (half-heartedly) to get some myth developer attention to
this module to see if it can be added to mythweb proper.  I think it
would be a valuable patch to allow remote interaction with myth via
such things as phones, tablet, other PCs etc.  I wanted some feedback
on whether it was a worthwhile endeavor before I submitted a trac
ticket but perhaps I should just go ahead and raise the ticket.  I
realise the devs are generally busy.

Let me know how you go.
