You might be interested in this if you want to add remote X11 support to 
a Windows Desktop. Take a look at

Getting X11Drv and gdi going might not be to hard but if you guys ever 
want to get Wineserver going, cygwin still needs to implement send/recv 
msg. I am glad that others are interested in this so I would love to 
help any way I can.
