Look. I understand that this project does not want to change
the X11 protocol, and as far as I can see NX (which is what
that link I posted is about) does not do that. It is a
protocol compressor. Like lbxproxy, I think.

I seem to recall Keith Packard saying he'd tested it, and there wasn't
much of a performance win over using raw gzip compression on the data
stream.  However, an NX extension will definately be a welcome addition
to Xouvert; anyone who wants to try it out should be able to.
