I do not think so. What I would like to do is to replace the current
invocation (where hose is from

ssh remote_host hose localhost 5901 --netslave
ssh -oForwardStdInAndOut=localhost/5901 remote_host 

In this way a process (hose) that simply copy megabytes of vnc traffic
would be eliminated decreasing latency. BTW, what would be a better
name then ForwardStdInAndOut ?
