Guessing probably, though not sure about XDCMP or whatever that acronym 
I see in my GDM desktop login manager is, since I know X forwarding over 
SSH works if that more limited solution suits you, the only side effect 
there being that you need to use something like matchbox keyboard since 
the standard maemo stuff won't pop up on forwarded X.

A programmer started to cuss
Because getting to sleep was a fuss
As he lay there in bed
Looping 'round in his head
was: while(!asleep()) sheep++;
