what does it do?

x11 does already support networking, with opengl acceleration. has come in 
handy when have had to present an a small laptop with little memory, to be 
able to run e.g. opengl game engines in another machine (hundreds of meters 
away in a 100M network :), but use the laptops gpu.

verse is also made with collaboration in mind, and perhaps data sharing is 
better for that than remote desktopping?
