er... two things... 1) This requires non-password authentication if you're wanting to put it in a script rather than firing it manually. 2) DO NOT ENABLE THE root ACCOUNT OVER SSH. It's far less retarded to make auth.log group readable and do this via a user account in the $(stat -c %G /var/log/auth.log) group. Other than that, not a bad concept.
