Oh, that's even better, because you do have the secure circuit.

emacsclient doesn't seem to support this.  :-(  gnuclient (XEmacs's
version) has a -nw option (no-window-system), which connects to the
server and shows the emacs window on the gnuclient's TTY.

   I've done cooperative editing this way, by the way, and discovered
   that I really don't want to work that way with the person I tried it
   with.  He kept making typos, and correcting my indentation style.
   Unforgivable!  ;-)

Oh, certainly!  It was just a cautionary example.  It's not like I
can't work with that guy at all, it's just that (as Stefan points out)
sometimes it's better to have a communication buffer bigger than one
character!  I suspect we could have worked out a protocol if needed,
but in fact we were sitting at neighboring desks.
