Of course you can't load a local file into a gimp instance running on
a different machine but on the same X server. That's not any different
to the current situation though. And it would probably be possible to
design the remote protocol in a way that avoids this problem. So we
can only improve things.

What hasn't been discussed at all yet, is how to implement the remote
protocol. On X11 we should probably use selections (basically what we
are doing now, perhaps done somewhat less hackish). What should be
used on Win32?
