Would it be possible to allow a widget set to be able to run on the server side as well as able to run client side if the widget set is unavailable on the server?

Applications still need libgtk+ (as an example), because they're linked against it. You can ofcourse make a wrapper library to send it to the X server which should then run the extension that handles widgets. And when that is done, how are you going to seperate server side and client side toolkits? You could write a seperate "private" library, which contains the client side stuff, and libgtk+ just being a wrapper to either of the methods. But you can't leave the client side stuff in libgtk+ itself: it's a waste of memory.

It still means there's alot of work to be done before we get there, and I mean ALOT. It _may_ be possible to do it like DRI, which also _may_ require less work, but it'll only work on the local machine anyways and so that is basically not an option.

I doubt it'll be usefull in the end.
