Well for the client side of things there's a much better VNC viewer in 
the form of Vinagre which is the new GNOME viewer using GTK-VNC. Unlike
any vncviewer code derived from RealVNC it actually integrates with and
uses modern desktop capabilities - eg, gnome-keyring, avahi discovery,
bookmarking of connections.
