The latency is horrendous over anything slower than a T1 for anything
more interesting than xlogo.

I've found that (other than the long start-up time) some small X apps
are usable remotely over my ISDN, but anything big is just too slow.
Analog dial-up just adds to the latency.

Just out of curiousity, has anybody tried dxpc?  Supposedly it's a bit
better than lbx.
