Depending on what are your needs you have at least three ways to go:

1) If you just want a remote GUI, i.e. your application running on 
computer A and display, keyboard and mouse on computer B, you don't have 
to change a bit, because Linux and X11 already provide all the 
facilities to do that: just use a remote X server, and you're done.

If you on the contrary you want a mix of local and remote functions (one 
window in computer A, one window in computer B, and such)

2) you can start a full new widgetset, maybe taking the nogui widgetset 
as a starting point

3) create your branch among the backends of CustomDrawn, and implement 
what you need.
