Hmmm well may I ask why you want such a setup ? The only advantages I 
can see are to keep your main-workstation free of the builds for your 
WMs and the fact that your main system remains somewhat cleaner. But I 
doubt it will weigh up against the time-costs for your X11 forwarding ? 
Or am I missing something ?
