I want one process to issue OpenGL commands to another. Is it okay to share rendering contexts across processes? Is it cross-platform? If not, could one process generate a rendering list and send it to another, or would I have to marshall every function call individually?

No.

The latter. Contexts aren't sharable between processes (only between threads with the same parent process).
