One additional possibility: with a sufficient level of craziness, you
might at one point of time link X libraries into Windows executables.
Then it would be possible to connect into an Emacs session running on
a Windows system from a system with an X server (either Windows with
an additional X server, or a posixy system), and have an X frame open
on that system.
