Many years ago I used to LBX to do this kind of thing.  Does LBX still 
exist?  It was a pain to set up and was fairly fragile, but it worked.  
I'm just wondering if it has been completely abandoned since we all have 
high bandwidth connections now.  

At the time I wondered why it hadn't made it into X as a standard part of 
the system.

  pessimist fears it is true.
