Hi,
Ever since the good old BeOS developer days ive been toying around with 
the idea of adding remote Xserver support for beos,
As far as i know (havent checked it out deeply yet though) when the 
xhost sends information to the remote maschine to draw a window, its 
done with primitive draw commands?
So in theory one could write a network addon to catch those and mimic 
the xserver, to draw the remote window pretty easiely right?
Ofcourse there is already a Xserver for beos, but im not talking about 
doing a whole xserver, just the appropriate stuff needed in order to 
render a window in a BWindow, this should improve speed of the remote 
windowing compared to the Xserver for BeOS? or am i way off here?
