Any reason for not being a "real" server?

I've been using MOC for a long while now and want to get to play across the network (my apt. has a Debian music machine and it's a pain to ssh everytime). Is there anyone already working on it? Or some other reason I shouldn't go ahead and implement it?

This change wouldn't be so simple, now the client access files, so just changing unix socket to a TCP connection isn't enough. Moreover, I personally don't like the idea, I want to keep MOC simple without features which only 1% of people will use and make development of MOC harder.

For simpler ssh login you could use key authorization, or ssh-agent and then make an alias like alias moc-remote='ssh machine mocp'
