we may want to delay merging this series right after 0.5.7 release tomorrow?

Although the series is fairly small and straightforward.

This patch series implement a simple kiosk mode for virt-viewer, using
the -k command line option.

It will open virt-viewer on all client monitors in fullscreen, and
won't provide any UI but the remote display or a blank window with
some status. It becomes almost impossible to move out or quit. USB
redirection is disabled in this mode too.

Since window managers have various behaviours that are hard to prevent
(win+client, alt+drag, bindings), it is designed to run with X11
Option "DontVTSwitch" "true", without WM, for example this way:
$ pkill yourwm ; virt-viewer -k ... ; yourwm &
