I've got an SB3 in my living room hooked to my stereo and a Mac Mini in my bedroom acting as the server. I'd like to use the remote that came with the Mac to control my SB3. There are 3rd party apps that would allow me to control any program with the remote, but I don't think I can do it through the browser interface. Moose is a great program, but it's Windows only.

Has anyone set up their Mac remote to control their SB3? If so, would you like to share how you did it?

If these apps are scriptable, you might teach it how to use SC's CLI (see http://yourserver:9000/html/dos/cli-api.html). These commands can be sent over a telnet connection or in JSON packages over a JSON/RPC interface.
