Interesting, but it's not _that_ hard to do vnc over ssh the hard way. The version of vncviewer included in k12ltsp supports the '-via ' option so you can give the ssh target (which doesn't have to be the same machine but it can be) and it sets the tunnel up transparently:
vncviewer -via gateway  remotehost
gives you a vnc connection to remote host which may be behind a firewall with only ssh access to the gateway machine permitted through.

And GUI access to files is easy enough by telling nautilus to use ssh.
