Yes, people ignoring immediate context, such as the immediately
preceding sentence within the very same paragraph, is unfortunately endemic
among computerists.  Nothing to be done about it, I guess, except donate
some spare ducats to the Asperger Syndrome Foundation.

Well, my own form of remote session is shell over ssh.  I'm betting that
won't always Work for You<tm>, though.  (It's my experience that when
someone says "How do I export my entire X11 session over the network?", 
he/she turns out upon examination to be solving the wrong problem.

(Gee, I hope I don't need to start appending a footer saying "views
expressed are not necessarily purported to suit all featherless
bipeds in all living situations on all continents at all times.)
