I noticed the other day that MythTV has an option to "Enable Network
Remote Control interface".  Looks like this is just a port you can
telnet to and pass commands.  I intend to write a remote control app
that would run on OpenMoko.  Cause I think that would be awesome.  Of
course, it would only really be useful if the Neo has wifi...

Hmm...  Maybe I should create that project on openmoko.org.
