we had to buy the ssh add-on to eXceed when we decommed rexec / rsh / rlogin.
not sure if they've bundled it since.

if the user needs Unix based X graphics app to appear on MSWindows
desktop, eXceed with Ssh upgrade or Cygwin are the usual options. We
used it for Xemacs and Mozilla to read local-filesystem html help
files on AIX, and the occasional X-based installer/config program.

This particularly savvy user you mention might appreciate Cygwin, but
it's not for general population.
