Well, Xvnc is supposedly an X server, so I'd put it as about the same level
of kludginess as the rest of X. :)  It runs in its own private session just
like any other X server (I'm running 4 of them on my work machine right now
for various reasons under various logins, along with a normal XSVGA, all on
different display numbers).  You can run a vncviewer in your root window on
the machine running Xvnc and then run a vncviewer on whatever platform
you're viewing remotely so your desktop stays the same, but the linux
version doesnt' actually copy anything like the windows vnc server does
(which is what I assume you were talking about).

Anywho, whatabout just tunneling X over ssh with compression?  Is that
acceptable on your existing link?  Does ssh's compression just suck too
