This is my point.  The Linux OpenGL architecture has been optimized for local
hardware rendering.  It's impossible to get "usable" remote OpenGL today, mainly
because textures are such an integral component of 3D rendering today.  Trying
to push texture data over ethernet (even GigE) for real time rendering is not
really doable.
