VNC seems a very good "catch-all" technology and I think its something 
we need to look at more closely. 
One possible route that I quite likes was to write a VNC grabber module
for VIC that would allow the sending site to send a VNC session in the
way as any other video stream. I started to look into doing this but 
as AG2.0 is going to make adding aditional services much easier I think
its going to be simpler to have a stand-alone multicast VNC service.
