Yes, I'd agree in my case, what with 20 viewports/desktops/whatever
they're currently called. But I do routinely run two browsers under
different userids, so I wouldn't mind trying to run the second
userid's on a separate xserver to see if it's faster (though cut and
paste might be more complicated).

But that will have to wait for my getting hold of a more powerful
machine than I have at present.
