they both talk the SMTP protocol.
I don't think that integrating to specified environment is useful in this case. In my opinion kde & gnome use same xserver with same policies so vino and krfb (and x11vnc) is more about xserver than about specific UIs. This is main argument why could be these programs merged to one. It is very easy write simple GUI with two buttons - "start remote desktop" and "stop remote desktop" - which could works under gnome and kde and other window managers.

How is it not important that they are properly integrated into the
desktop? Your proposal sounds very simple and ugly compared to the slick
integration of e.g. vino.

I don't said that integration is unimportant. I said that both of krfb and vino is much more about xserver than about window manager. Only one think could be integrated with specified window manager - button "start remote desktop" and "stop remote desktop". All other is really wm independent.
