how would remote user start X application on local monitor


I log in from a remote location, but I need to start an aplication
(example: emacs /home/user/documents/importantpaper & )
so that the person at home can see it and work with it. The person at
home is very old (8x, x > 5), so there is little hope of getting the
person to start the application pointing to the right position, or to
go through a sequence of C-F etc to find it.

Suppose that the output of w is

aguax@terraklin:~$ w
 06:37:59 up 12:38,  3 users,  load average: 0.00, 0.25, 0.46
USER     TTY      FROM              LOGIN@   IDLE   JCPU   PCPU WHAT
aguax    :0       -                Tue18   ?xdm?  42:02   0.56s x-session-manag
aguax    pts/0    :0.0             Tue18    4:51   1.16s  0.71s mutt -y
aguax    pts/1    :0.0             04:40    0.00s  0.02s  0.00s w

plus some other remote user aguax in tty domain.here.com, connected in
an ssh session. Is there any way of doing this?
