  Very cool. I wonder if we should not move out virsh specific code to
a new separate subdir, like for the proxy to clean things up a bit in src/

  Okay, the other option would have been to fork vncviewer directly,
but that's more generic. Seems however that would be incomplete if connecting
to a remote xend, but that's something we should be able to do properly
