A beefed up version today is to vncviewer(1) over SSH into a desktop on
a beefy CPU server where vncserver has been set running for a particular
user.  Everything is as it was left and modern X is happy to adjust on
the fly to the screen dimensions of the current viewer.  Doesn't have
Plan 9's elegance, but still gives utility.

Cheers, Ralph.
