When I refer to frame-buffer based I am referring to a remote system
that merely mirrors the whole screen remotely what I was looking for is
a way to remotely run a graphical app and have it display on my screen,
not the whole remote screen, just the one app. X does this nicely, but
when you lose the connection you can't get it back.
