Shall I infer from the presence of X11-based tools such as
GDE that registered subscribers can run a remote X11 session
on the CBR servers? That seems to be implied, but
the documentation on the web site had nothing on 
whether this was possible, or if so, how to connect.
Only Web-based programs appeared to be documented.
