Remoting existing Windows apps individually is very hard for various
reasons.  Writing your own programs that output VNC data is much easier.
I'm not sure of how easy remoting a single X app would be but it's
probably easier just to run it on a plain Xvnc desktop without a window
manager that to actually write a special VNC server to do it.
