I can't answer the specified question, but why do you assume that ssh
restricts you to cli?

You can use port forwarding (quite easily from putty) to display X apps
to the users' machine.  Only catch is that they have to have an X server
installed, but you can get this for free (in both senses) from cygwin.

That being said, depending on your remote users' connections, X might be
quite laggy.
