    Isn't that something ssh would need to provide support for?

    It seems to be rather slow on adding forwarding capabilities, let alone short convenience commandline switches.

    E.g. D-Bus is a major Unix socket based communication channel, has been in use by UI applications for over a decade, but last time I checked there was no ssh option akin to -X that would create the necessary socket+environment on the remote side for apps to connect to.

    Cheers,

    You'd better wish for a well-designed remoting protocol instead of having the "ssh -Y" version of wayland.
    I'm only on my local network but I will check out xpra. Thanks for the heads-up.

    I don't care if that's called network transparency or network aware or scraping pixels, I'm just saying that some of us little people out here rely on some of these features that have been a part of X since time immemorial.

    Nobody denies this. Wayland isn't even ready for mainstream non-networked use.

    Yes, thanks.
    To expand on my previous post: Weston's remote desktop subsystem only proves that it's possible to have remote desktop on top of Wayland,
    but many Wayland users still won't be able to use it because their compositor doesn't have this feature..

    I guess someone will come up with a comfortable way to lauch a VNC session remotely from the command line ...
