Open up Terminal on your mac.  That's what ssh is [1].  You have a
command-line on a different computer.

[1] vastly simplified.

Now open up X11 on your mac, installed via the developer tools.
Anything you run inside X11 [2] (such as gitk or firefox) can be
run from an external machine, with the graphics showing up on your
computer but running on the external machine.

[2] again, vastly simplified.

Agreed.  I think the most we'd use it for would be LSR.  I don't
think we should give ssh logins to developers for testing patches;
that should be done locally otherwise it could easily lead to
major headaches [3] for whoever's handling this.

[3] then again, it's not me so if you want to try it, go ahead.
