For X2Go Client, this should work (I guess). For PyHoca-GUI (the other  
X2Go Client application), this is in the (my) queue.

X2Go supports published applications. You can blend in server-side  
applications into a second menu tree. One session in published  
applications mode is considered as one X2Go session. 10-20 X2Go  
Session should be hostable on one big terminal server (8 cores, 16 GiB  
RAM). However, it also depends on the load each user produces.

We, for example, use X2Go in public schools and one X2Go server  
handles a class room with ease. X2Go can be very powerful and scales  
really well, but maybe others should report here, as well, as I am  
pretty much biased...

Greets,
