No I don't think that's anything we will ever add to virt-manager. I can
understand the desire but virt-manager is not about managing physical hosts.
Today I have to use "ssh -X" or xrdp to the remote VM host.
seems to leave something running if I open gedit for a quick
modification to a file as a logout needs to be followed by a ctrl-C to
get a command prompt. And xrdp seems to have a number of issues, besides
being "yet another" user interface.
There's also vnc-server/xvnc and xspice. But if your main qualm with ssh -X is
that the ssh session doesn't exit cleanly after running gedit, I'd a) file a
gedit bug and b) learn a simple command line text editor like nano to work
around the issue in the interim.
