[winswitch] Use spice to show individual X clients like xpra does?

I've played around a bit with xpra[1]. Xpra (AFAIK) starts an X server with a 
dummy video driver (or xvfb?) on the remote machine and a client xpra process 
on the local machine shows remote application windows just like they would run

Xpra also forwards sound, clipboard and microfon. So it seems to me that there 
is some overlap with spice.

It would be cool, if I could use spice in the same way, to see virtual machine 
X clients integrated in my local desktop just like local applications. Is this 
on your roadmap?
