Well, someone suggested that SUPDUP is archaic, and that we should devote
our attention instead to developing applications based on windowing
systems such as X.

I have a hard time imagining BITBLTing across the Internet at 56kps (and
less). Now if we had T1 or T3... In any case, such bitmap transfers
would be slower than waiting for the remote host to do your editing for
you... And gobble much more bandwidth.
