No, as I already said several times in this thread. More exactly: I do
control the one where I'd need this first, but not others on which
I'll have to work soon, that's why I'm looking for one solution which
doesn't rely on access to server. So, this wouldn't work, would it:

because it has to run on the same server which hosts the drupal
website, right?

The only problem being that "we" only means drupal sysadmins, not
drupal users. I don't want to modify anything in the drupal websites I
need to use, they work just fine. I only want to write software which
talks to them from remote computers, to add nodes.
