1) with X-forwarding you can run an application with GUI on a headless
Rpi0 and have it displayed on your main machine.

2) there's a 'deken' cmdline tool that allows you to also
find/download/install packages from the ... cmdline.
however, the version in Debian/stretch (and thus raspbian), which you
would get by running 'apt-get install deken', is too old for this.
to manually install the tool, follow the instructions at [1].

and b) let me know what you would like to

btw, i think alex is mostly interested in benchmarks of the armv6
binaries on the RPi3 as compared to the armv7 binaries. (we already know
that the armv7 binaries will **not work** on the RPi0; and that the
armv6 binaries should run fine on the RPi0).
if alex is not mostly interested in them, then *i* am :-)
