in thread bcvi - run vi over a 'back-channel'
At the risk of feeding a troll ...
There's nothing in the linked page that in any way mimics the functionality of bcvi - namely allowing you to type 'vi filename' in a remote shell window and have a gvim session start on your workstation.
The page seems to describe a plugin for Emacs (called TRAMP) that offers equivalent functionality to Vim's 'netrw' feature.
It would certainly be possible to modify bcvi to work with Emacs+TRAMP rather than gvim+netrw.
