Doubtful that would work then, although it could do an X -query $X11SERVER
where the X11 server is broadcasting XDMCP.  Could probably also use
LTSP's ldm to connect to a standard LTSP server instead of running a local
GUI.  That is essentially X compressed and encrypted over a
ssh tunnel.  Either of these methods would work over either a usb NIC or
the wifi.
