      I don't see how this is a feature. I can see the local gvim on my remote
      machine and want to load a remote file in my local gvim. When I use gvim
      --remote SOMEFILE on the remote machine, an *empty* file gets loaded on
      my local gvim. So it seems that there is some connection between the
      remote machine an my local gvim, but I actually expected that SOMEFILE
      gets loaded in my local vim. Is this possible with the --remote option?

      I really want to avoid that, since I don't want to browse the rather
      complicated tree on the remote system within vim, but rather with ssh.
