That would be nice.

It uses Perspective Broker, if that's of any help. The slave creates
an outgoing TCP connection (which should be kept up all the time),
but the master pushes commands over that connection, no polling.

Correct. However, I wouldn't want to create that unless you had all the
software in place already - else I find myself often waiting for some
time, then removing the slave again.
