Yes, X11 forwarding is clearly not the way to go.  But why not open
files on the remote server using TRAMP which comes with emacs?
Similarly, you can have many remote shell buffers as well.  That works
very good for me.  Hey, I even read PDF files and view images on remote
machines using TRAMPed dired, doc-view, and image-mode.
