Not a full solution, but just a thought, you could use some sort of CGI
script to call your Qt Application backend?

For the Gui, I wonder if rendering the image into a texture or an image.
Send the image to the client (delta compressed). Make the rendering into a
canvas and apply changed. You could send the mouse click from the client
back to the application as JSON call to your CGI as relative coordinate and
simulate them into the Qt application.

This would be bandwidth intensive, but depending on what you try to
