New applets with VNC

It seems to me VNC would be a way to deploy applets using Java 1.1 (for 
example, the JFC / Swing components), but still retain compatibility with 
older browsers which only support Java 1.0.

When connecting to a web page using an older browser, the appletviewer 
starts up on the server, connected to Xvnc.  This is then displayed by the 
Java VNC viewer on the client.

Has anyone out there done such a thing?  Is there anyone who could advise 
me on how difficult it would be, and how to go about it?
