	Not all UNIX users are skilled enough to handle all of this
flexiblity... Often reinventing the wheel to allow those "less than gurus"
to use software efficiency is worth it. Either that, or I am not following
what you are saying. Basically any method that saves a user from having to
make a seperate telnet login to start up Xvnc (and then manually killing
it) would be advantageous. Anyway, that is my two cents.
