Actually there is a new tool available called Xremote that distributes
the task of processing X protocol requests between a local UNIX system
and a remote X server (``remote'' being on the other end of some serial
connection; presumably anything acting like a terminal would do).
This is not unlike what Graphon and NCD do to improve serial line
performance.

I'll check into the availability of this software and get back to this
group.
