I've always figured X11 was proof that you can never have a fast enough
CPU or enough memory.  :-)

I've tried X11 across a DSL line, it gives a whole new meaning to the
word slow.  I wound up creating a SSH tunnel to a browser inside the
client's firewall, a solution neither of us are entirely happy with,
as it may have some security concerns.  We're probably setting up a VPN
connection, but that's hung up in accounting.

My point is that solutions which require other technology just to install
or use, whether that be a simple browser or X11, can be self-defeating.  

If we're trying to sell ourselves to the PHP and/or MySQL communities, 
needing or even recommending X11 isn't the direction we should be going.
