As others have stated, you should move forward with the VNC you wish to 
support, and we'll try to make sure it is marked as default in the right 
groups and be the only vnc included in the spins.  However the other vncs can 
remain in the distribution if there is a willing maintainer and if they don't 
have any conflicts (file conflicts) with the other VNC software.
