[PD] Chromium and Gem integration Q.

I have a rather interesting 'feasibility question' regarding  
integrating chromium (http://chromium.sourceforge.net ) and pd/gem.

I will be entering a new media graduate program, and the CS dept at  
the school has mentioned it would like to work with the integrated  
digital media program in building and creating tools.

We are interested in using cave systems/multipipe projection systems  
for interactive art performances, but no tools exist 'out of box' to  
create a cave system with 'n' projectors in 'y'  configuration..  
(afaik), that allow for realtime performance.

So I had the idea of potentially embedding the chromium engine in to  
PD and Gem, which would allow for an interactive, dynamic, multi  
screen environment that is now a platform for performance.

So, my question is, is it feasible to integrate chromium in to gem in  
such away so that a gem patch could be run spanning multiple machines  
and multiple displays? Im imagining a system  where one could  
generate PD patches for, and then plug it in to a multipipe system  
running chromium-PD/Gem.

Thanks for any information either way,
