Is there any way to install or activate sshd in an Apple Time Capsule in the way you can download dd-wrt and install custom firmware on a netgear router?

I'd like to enable sshfs access to Time Capsule. And possibly install pyTivo to have it serve files to my Tivo.

Anyone done this?

At present no one has successfully done this.

Two links I ran across of those trying:
