I actually have a draft of a networked remote control app written in
python. It still requires cleaning up that I haven't really gotten
around to (especially the command interface and error handling, and, oh
yeah, packaging), but it basically works. You can define button sets and
what commands to run on the local or a remote host (through ssh, for
instance). You can run it either locally on the Neo or over X11 on the
host to be controlled, so you don't necessarily need python on the Neo.

I added a link to the wiki wishlist.
