Correct; Sanjay, you should pretend a domU is a separate physical machine and 
access it over the network.  This means either:

* ssh -X to the domU to enable remote X windows communications
* Run vncserver in the domU
* Run Xnest in dom0 and get apps in the domU to connect to it
* Run FreeNX server in the domU

We'd like to make this possible in native domUs too...  when somebody has 
enough time to work on a virtual framebuffer device!
