What you describe is pretty much *exactly* what a front end does. So, you'd
be using an X11 front end on whatever box you're on and it would connect to
a kernel running on the Mac. (Note: no need to have an X11 front end
running on the Mac, although such a thing is at least theoretically possible
given that Apple has released an X11 for OS X.)
