At the moment, no.  It has been discussed several times on the list in 
the past few months - if you can find the archives, you should be able 
to get a feel for what ideas have been kicked around.

Personally, I use the GPL version of the NoMachine X server on my file 
server, and just remote-client in to it from my laptop.  Full KDE 
session in Windows :)  Works fine over a 256kbit ADSL link too.

Not that I'm aware of - whenever I manipulate my MRW files, Save As is 
always a menu option.  Maybe I'll find a sacrificial mrw file and see 
what happens when I click save instead.
