mix 1 part ssh, add shell script to taste

It would be trivial, for example, to set up a shell script which
itterated through your client hosts running 'ssh $host svc -t /service/zope'
sending SIGTERM to the processes to restart them, or
substitute svstat, svok, etc. for different results.  Tie commands to
ssh keys for added security.

It would be safer (wouldn't require super-user privs) though to poll
status using an apache-style server-status handler.  The downside to
that is that if zope is wedged or down you must rely on a timeout as
an indicator (though there's nothing horribly wrong with that, its
just not very precise).  One of my plans for a side projects is adding
more logging to zope so that I can cull server status information from
my logs, which may to some extent, provide finer granularity with less
