Yeah, and in fact in RHEL / Fedora we explicitly don't want the version
check, because we're planning to backport the new style PVFB config to
the Xen 3.0.3 build we have.

Definitely don't want to include the password. We should add the vnclisten
data there though at some point in future - if only because it'll make it
easier for apps to sanity check. Adding the vnclisten data isn't a data leak
because you can already trivially see if with 'netstat'.

I guess I could simply leave out that chunk /change - since that old style
config for PVFB simply won't ever appear in XenD SEXPR from 3.0.4 onwards.
