Not sure my comments will help you but I post them for the record.

It seems ok. However, note that you can put the pyro server config in the
/etc/default/pyro-nsd file.

Not certain but you can perhaps get rid of the pyro server if you already
know the object URIs:

Check if the command "pyro-nsc listall" is capable of giving a valid instances list.
If not, it's surely a name server problem.

Try http://pyro.sourceforge.net/manual/3-install.html for useful
environment variables to debug that more easily.

I don't know what's kind of client code you want, but there exists
something very handy for remote execution:
Write a migration script, put your logic inside and run it by
cubicweb-ctl shell <migration script> All the necessary stuff for
the remote connection will be done for you.
