Is enough of the NeXTStep protocol published (or been decoded) to
write a display server for remote NeXT applications on a different
platform?

Under 1.0, the Window Server communicated with clients via mach messages,
in a format described somewhere in the documentation (WindowServerProtocol.wn).
The contents of teh messages were either ASCII PostScript or binary-encoded
postscript, both of which are documented. I don't know if equivalent
documentation exists under 2.0 (I don't think so) or if the protocol has
changed incompatibly (I think it might have).
