That's why relatively crude protocols like VNC can completely outclass X -- sure, now you're stuffing giant blocks of pixels down the network pipe and taking way more bandwidth, but those giant blocks of pixels have no dependencies -- so instead of waiting around all the time, you can just saturate the pipe. (rsync uses a similar strategy; see also pipelined SMTP, IMAP, HTTP, ...)
