I don't see any problem in principle, except that the rendering engine
of the Info reader will have to be redesigned to work on output from
some external program that delivers small portions of the displayed

We will also have to design some protocol between the local and
remote parts, or teach Info to use some existing protocol, to pass
requests to the remote.
