Can one use Xvnc from xdm _and_ ensure only the user who logged in has access?

I can't think of an _easy_ way off the top of my head.  How about this

Have Xvnc be display :1 in Xservers.

Then in Xsession_1 put something like this:

#! /bin/sh
/usr/X11R6/bin/xmessage "$(vncserver 2>&1)"

You'd have to connect to the new session though, and you would need to
set a password first.
