True. Still, though effective, it's a bit harsh i think, and can give some 
mean behaviour if both clients have auto-reconnect on. Sometimes you
just want to put yourself 'away' instead of killing your client
completely. 
It might be a luxury problem, and such a remote control brings a lot of
security considerations with it, but i still think it's worth
considering.

cheers,
