Have you ever considered using a display-device-sharing & input-device 
multiplexing application, also known as a windowing server or compositor?

Let me tell you how our discussion went about two years ago inside the Qt team 
 - QWS had a windowing server, QPA doesn't have one
 - we need one for QPA
 - should we use QWS's protocol or should we have something different?
 - QWS was raster, so we need something different
 - do we invent our own or is there something that we could use?
 - there's Wayland...
