PB over SSH is... a good idea, but not the way to implement this, exactly.

What you'd want is a SSH *transport*. It would allow you to run any
twisted protocol over an existing conch SSH connection, transparently,
just as you can run over TCP or SSL. In addition this transport should
provide a credential object tied to the logged in user so you can use it
with cred transparently. Plus a  SSH-to-TCP gateway transport that lets
you listen or connect using the SSH portforwarding support.

Once you've built this, PB over SSH is probably 10 lines of code.
