Don't you all think that then the KDE remote desktop support is somewhat 
half-thought-up and half-done ? From this thread one can only see that 
the KDE's Remote Desktop support should allow (when connection to the 
*N*X machines is in question):

- attaching to one of currently running sessions (SuSE-9.1, for example, 
can have more than one KDE session running at the same time on the same 
- starting new *DM session (*DM stands for every possible configured 
session type, starting from the XDM through GNOME and KDE and each and 
every in between)

Obviously the software doing all this already exists. So the only 
problem here is the matter of time of one of existing or newcoming KDE 
developer. Should this be put on-to the KDE's wishlist or somebody is 
already working on it ?
