[Chugalug] Modern technologies for inbound traffic through NAT boxes?

Yet again a conversation has turned to "wouldn't it be great if we
could make a device that you plugged in to your home network and you
could access it from anywhere?"

I know the obvious solutions: Configure your NAT box to pass a socket
through (or a DMZ), pass data out to a third server and either proxy
through that server, or do something funky with that server to poke a
hole through to a third party (ala Skype or distributed IM systems),
but...

Anyone know the current state of "box inside the NAT network wants to
be visible to and discovered by device outside"?

Thanks!

Dan
