But at the moment, you start it from remoko, and you kill it in remoko.
What would the advantage be if remoko-server runs permanently?

If you really need a server, then please make it listen on a unix socket
(e.g. in /var/run) so that unix file permissions can control access
(plus it’s slightly faster).

Ok, I worked around these in;a=summary (it’s svn-git
based, my changes are in the debian branch).

I didn’t check really yet, but if it’s something that’s not caused by
me, I’ll let you know :-)

Hmm, it would be good if remoko works with other window managers as
well, so it should handle it gracefully if this extension is not
present. Maybe I’ll have a patch for that too, later.
