A remote Oberon desktop would be very interesting. This would require a remote Display. How to approach it? I can see three problems: 

1. Display is memory-mapped in local memory frame buffer which is tightly integrated both hardware and software-wise. How to move this to a remote computer?

2. Mouse is a low bandwidth peripheral. Graphics is high bandwidth. How to remap graphics to a remote machine w/o consuming a lot of bandwidth?

3. Security. 

Any thoughts?
