tranmission-remote - support process proxies

I access my tranmission RPC interface over ssh. As such it requires to manually setup local port forwarding when running the remote client. This is inconvenient.

It would be nice if the remote client supports starting an external process to access the RPC interface similar to ProxyCommand? in ssh. Then instead of using localhost:port_that_is_redirected_via_ssh together with manual port redirection I could just write ssh -W localhost:9091 remotehost. Then the remote client would use the process input/output to communicate to the tranmission daemon rather than using normal TCP socket. As a bonus this would allow to automatically reconnect the connection.
