In addition to libvnc.so we also need
to be built inside the LBE. I think it may put a small increase in
load on the clients since they would have the capability of running a
vnc server. However, this would only affect people who enable 
X4_MODULE_02 = vnc in lts.conf
So it would not affect others by default.

I may ask the list how many people would the like Monitor and Control
feature to get a sense of the demand.
