Reset modules over remote connection

Is there a (currently or planned) feature to allow a remotely connected user (logged in with the right privileges, of course) to reset the system/ cycle power? The modules reset when you send a project, or send settings, but there doesn't seem to be a way to reset the modules after manually adjusting any parameters.
This would be especially useful when adjusting "Initialization" parameters that require a reset to take effect. 

Sounds as if what you mean is restart? 

Using IQANscript, you can make a minimal script that triggers a Restart, something like this:  

For the master module to accept the Restart master script action, you need a safe way to set it to Allow remote stop

One method to check that the remote use has the right to do this could be to connect it via an IDC to Access level. You may of course need to combine this with other conditions too.
