If I ssh into a machine remotely, I can use lynx to administer it much
more easily than I can start konqueror (over the ssh-link), and
without having to do the firewall recorfiguration, NAT twiddling, etc
that I might have to do to allow a remote browser to access the
machine.  If text-only browsing doesn't work, I'll probably just edit
the config files with my text-only text editor rather than try to get
graphical browsing working to use SWAT2.
