X11 forwarding (with ``screen'' option)?

I'm experimenting with X11 forwarding and I have it working so I can ssh
to my server and fire up an application just great.  This is forwarded
to my laptop and works fine.

  However, I want to run something that is mostly going on in the
background (non-interactive) but my Internet link is never perfect.

  Is there any such thing as screen for X applications?  Would vnc work
for just one application, or would it create unnecessary overhead?  Any
other suggestions?

  Thanks very much,
