It's more that I'm being overly complicated and want some way of forcing
the xemacs process on one machine (machine 1) to use one filesystem,
except for when it is invoked by the gnuclient process on another machine
(machine 2; I don't want to just run the xemacs process on machine 2,
because machine 2 is maintained by central ITS who are useless
morons^W^Wrun several year old unmaintained versions of linux). Since a
wrapper around gnuclient pointing back to machine 1 is my $EDITOR of
choice on machine 2, I can't just put a symlink in for ~/thesis on machine
1, because sometimes I really do want to edit other files on machine 2.
Probably more of an ill thought-out idea than something worth persuing.
Never mind me :)
