Another handy hint which may be useful for some people, is that you can
specify the desktop name using the -name option to vncserver.  This will
be passed to the ~/.vnc/xstartup script as the VNCDESKTOP variable.  So
you could include things like the following in xstartup, and run
different desktops with different window managers:

case "$VNCDESKTOP" in
kde)
        startkde &
        ;;
windowmaker)
        wmaker &
        ;;
*)
        twm &
        ;;
esac
