The limitation of this approach, of course, is that if the weak
machine is *always* networked, then maybe is better to just go for
some existing thin client solution. If it's going to stay alone (ie
*without* an NFS or other server) all or most of the time, then it
would be crippled all of that time. 

Of course, if anybody does it, please let us know.
