A report from pgCon 2013
I totally agree that remote display is an absolute must.
But have you tried Emacs with TRAMP? It's a pain to set up but once working I've found that it really does what I need to do: compile, debug, shell, etc.
There are some things TRAMP can't do so it's not a complete replacement for remote display but I've found I don't need remote display for Emacs anymore. Other things, sure, but not Emacs.
Wayland and Weston 1.0 released

TRAMP is very nice, but without remote display I'd be left running my Emacs on a machine that was turned off, and not even Wayland can do that. :}
