Oh, thanks for clarification! For the future, can you advise me how to
differentiate between lawyers talking law-speech and trolls talking
nonsense? ;-)

I have read the GPL several times, and besides the cited FAQ I don't
see a reason why you may not be allowed to offer remote X access to a
linux system running (modified) GPL programs as long as you make sure
that the remote user can't get access to the actual program code. And
we are far away from planning such almost direct access.
