This is really cool!  Thanks, Robert!

FYI, the Lock/Launch screensaver button didn't work with the one Mac client I tested it 
with.  I haven't tried it with any PC clients yet.

Any chance Chuck's X11VNC stuff, as described at 
can be incorporated in a future release?  The VNCReflector gives us the inverse, of 
pushing a window out for all users to see.  But being able to see what's on a given 
client's screen would be really useful, too.
