Very nice!  But it doesn't quite get me where I want to be.  I work from
home occasionally, and so I'd like to be able to leave Emacs running at
the office and resume working on it remotely, on my laptop, over an ssh
tunnel.  But when I try to create a frame on my laptop's display, using
"localhost:10.0" as the display, I get "X11 connection rejected because
of wrong authentication."

Anyway, I guess this has become more of an X11 and/or ssh problem than
an Emacs problem.
