Yup, but the net effect is equivalent to going into the server machine
and executing a graphical emacs that is transported through X11 back to
my client machine (where the X11 server resides :)).

That's exactly what I was trying to avoid, and what I was expecting was
the split model that Chad and Stefan were describing.

In any case, thanks a lot for your answers, at least now I can tell my
work mate that this is one of the few things that his shiny new emacs
cannot do :)

Well, he told me that tramp was just "too slow" when saving files. I
don't know if this can be optimized.

Which I already do :)
