How about running a Nebraska server in the image, maybe with added
password protection for security?

I personally run my Swikis under VNC (http://www.uk.research.att.com/vnc/)
in Linux, which allows you to do exactly this - bringing up the window
only if needed. Someone started to implement VNC's RFB protocol in Squeak
so it would work with Windows, too. Any progress here?
