Honestly, if you want to solve the problem it would be better to write a tiny
little bit of Perl code that configures a dynamic VNC listener between the KVM
or OpenVZ socket and the guest.

Then you can use the existing, fully functional VNC clients out there to talk
to the server without needing to do anything special.
