But vncviewer gets you the whole remote desktop in a
separate window.  What I what are several menu buttons
from different remote machines running on my desktop with
programs started from any of them opening in new windows
on my desktop.  You can sort-of get the effect by dragging
some menu items onto the desktop on the remote machines
then from your desktop 'ssh -Y remote-machine' followed
by running 'nautlius &' in that terminal.  This opens a
screen on your desktop showing the remote desktop minus
the menus and taskbars, but you can double-click any of the
launchers you moved to the filesystem to start programs that
open in new windows on your display.  What I want is just the
menu button, though. If it had a name, I'd expect to be able
to 'ssh -Y remote_machine gnome-menu' or something like that
and get a working remote menu.
