I'm a bit lost...can you list an example of where this
functionality is
necessary? Doesn't functionality already exist for remote display? It
was my understanding that the clients already connected with the server
via TCP sockets. (If they're actually UNIX sockets, it would be trivial
to make them TCP sockets). As such, can't we simply run the server on
the "remote" machine with the display, and run the client on the "local"
machine whose data we wish to monitor? I'm not sure I see why there
needs to be a second "mini-server"...?
