Although one has to admit that working with remote X terminals over a
SSH/WAN/VPN-connection is far from usefull, [...]
You can tunnel just about anything X11 over SSH/VPN/etc.; even things
like a whole desktop GUI; not just plain X terminals.

However, there´s NX ( and
other products but out of the box X11 it´s quite slow over higher latency
One good way to reduce latency (at least when using X11 over SSH) is
to tell SSH to compress its connection tunnel ("ssh -C ...").
