That's probably the easiest and more robust way to do it.

I'm sure it's possible, but it's probably also very painful to do,
especially in the context of Tramp (you'd probably have to either require
users install some multiplexing program on the server's end or write it in
Perl and transmit it, but it's likely to be a large piece of code).

It might be easier to think of it as a tramp-server, which you'd run in
place of a bourne shell.  Maybe it's not a bad idea.
