now there aren't yet.
it is still an experimental branch on the CVS called "multiple_window"

the problem is that as multiple_window is done right now, it depends on 
display-list sharing, which is not possible across multiple machines.
thus it doesn't yet work to have one "master" machine running the 
gem-patch and several slaves which do the actual drawing.

in the meantime you could try chromium [1], which is some virtual driver 
that allows to render to several remote machines.
i have no idea though, about performance.

if you have any technical knowledge and are willing to help a hand, we 
would welcome you warmly....
