I'd like a "real" mac-os xterm running, akin to opening an X11 window.
So, a VM/Container is not going to work.

I think that XQuartz is the X-server for MacPorts X11.app. That "full
screen" mode takes over the entire display (hiding all other Mac
applications). I would like to have that X display within a Mac Window.
I currently use a VNC server on a debian machine, and a VNC client on my
Mac. I am trying to configure my Mac to run the Xserver/VNC server so
that I don't need to remote-connect to my Linux host.
