Ah, have to love that...

Most x apps support a sort of -console option, where you say, i.e., 
bar:~> xroach -console foo:0.0 -speed 3 -color blue

And it'll run it using your workstation's memory, CPU, etc., but route 
the app's window/output to your system at home, in this case, foo, from 
your workstation, in this case, bar.  I don't know of a way to do it 
after the app is running... If anyone has suggestions as to how to do 
this, I'd love to hear them, because I've wanted to do it a few times.
