Remote control system for control room idea

Not really and idea for ardour itself but…

I was day dreaming at work on how to control Ardour in my control room from behind my drum kit and came up with (perhaps) a solution. SSH into my control room box from my laptop (with X forwarded) and just like that wireless remote! Anybody tried this? Or currently doing this?

It works just fine over a LAN or very very high speed WAN.
