I think it depends on how the remote host handles the terminal device,
pseudo-terminals, etc. For example, I've seen cases where remote
iESS[SAS] does not work, but remote ess-sas-interactive does. They both
rely on the same internals so the iESS stuff works, but the remote host
can't communicate with it. There was a long thread on this in the early
naughties that you might be able to find.
