On the other hand, is there a way of the client being notified that their
machine is being viewed by way of a pop up message or other?

"Hiding the tray icon"

This is sort of a "taboo" issue... mainly because there seems to be no
legitimate reason to hide the server's icon.  The only reason I can think of
is to facilitate spying on someone, which I believe the good folks at AT&T
Research are not interested in advertising, especially after the rather
nasty article in Time magazine that proclaimed vnc to be nothing more than
"spyware."

Having said that... vnc is open source.  You can download the source code
and make whatever changes you want.  But please don't be offended if no one
on the list wishes to help you do it.  We'd all hate to see the vnc project
go closed source (or worse, be discontinued) due to any more bad press, and
the "feature" you're after is the heart of it.
