You can write a script to restart Tkined. However, Tkined needs to
have an X11 server around and you probably need to play with access
control. You can also try to run a pseudo X11 server which does not
really have a display.

Yes, Tkined should have been a client/server type of thing from the
beginning. But such is life.
