Well.. yeah, there's no need for an additional daemon on the outside,
but a daemon at the beginning of the session would be needed (although
it could be shut down shortly later). Eg

$ ssh -L 4444:localhost:4444 'drb.rb drb://localhost:4444'

This would work quite well, but the drb port would be accessible by
local processes.
