X in general will let you run anything from anywhere either with
it's own $DISPLAY concept or ssh forwarding.  The hard part is
deciding where the window manager should run and then getting
the remote apps into the menu there.  Maybe the menu launchers
could be modified to use something in the environment to decide
if a application should be run on the same machine as the WM,
on an app server, or back as a local app on your client.
