I'm running Ubuntu Touch on a Galaxy Nexus. Loving it. Is there a way to run the phone-app on a desktop from the phone?

I.e., if we were running x11, I would simply export this through an ssh session. I've installed xorg (minimal X server), and can run X apps from my phone on my desktop. Is there a way to do the same with qml apps? Want to be able to send sms messages from my computer through the phone, and am looking for a quick and dirty hack to do it.
