I also toyed with the idea of adding this instead as an API call to
libvirt called something like virDomainDisplay() and allowing other
backends to advertise their URIs to the domain's display. I believe
VMWare has VMWare View which I would assume would have a method by
which to call it and provide the machine to connect to as command line
arguments. Then virsh would simply hook the 'domdisplay' command to
virDomainDisplay() and spit out that output. It would probably be able
to be used by virt-manager and vdsm as well.

Just a thought. Let me know.
