I'm not saying we should stop including vncviewer. I'm just saying that
discussions about whether to use the original RealVNC vncviewer vs the
Baracuda fork'd vncviewer is rather missing the point. If we want good
quality VNC clients we should spend effort on apps which take advantage
of the modern Linux desktop, beit GNOME or KDE.
