This has worked for years, just nobody knew it existed.

$ waypipe ssh <user>@<host>

You need the package "waypipe" installed on both ends, but once you
have it, it'll handle the tunneling for you.

There is also the package "ydotool" which can help replace xdotool.

KDE Plasma Wayland is constantly and continually improving! Plasma 6
is going to be the largest boost in the experience in a while, though,
because lots of work done by KDE in Qt is finally becoming available
