Hi Felix.

Thank you for suggestions.

I've just tried that and was at least able to confirm that, yep, you can get 
hiDPI on OSX. You'd have to do the xrandr dance and really crank up face height 
in Emacs but it is possible and the text is crisp. Sadly, I was unable to have 
XQuartz recognize that I have two displays. xrandr reports a single one, 
XQuartz darkens both and lets you only drag a part of the window onto external 
display. Google is very quiet on all things XQuartz. Ditto their mailing list.

I've not tried x2go, it doesn't have x2goserver package for Guix. I could 
probably try and build it from source. I have tried XPRA, which kinda worked 
but the author confirmed that HiDPI won't work on OSX, yet.
