I got VNC working, no problem. First, I installed RFBServer, configured 
it with a password, and started it through the menu with the display 
number set to 0.
Then, I ran vncviewer, and everything works as expected ;) I wonder how 
much effort it would take to send events between windows on remote 
images, instead of sending bitmap updates. I think that's how Windows' 
remote desktop works, and it is way more responsive than VNC.
