Does this relate somehow to the sbrsh[1] which allows running Scratchbox
foreign binaries which are in actuality transparently executed on
a device with a different CPU over the network?  Sbrsh supports even
fakeroot over NFS mounts, transports environment variables, ulimits,
return values etc.

Sbrsh is used in the situations where Qemu doesn't emulate the target
hardware well enough, but as it's mainly a build tool, it doesn't
do any UI exporting back from the device to the PC.
