It occurs to me that this program would make an excellent basis for a VNC

Yeah, something like that has been done already: http://libvncserver.sourceforge.net/qemu/qemu-rfb13.patch.gz

There is a notable update since rfb12 (which is a bit out of date _cough_): Nis Jorgensen has sent a patch to support scroll mice.

IMHO the biggest obstacle to inclusion in mainline QEmu is that the mouse support is rather flakey: You have to disable mouse acceleration of the guest OS.

I had that cunning plan to write a virtual Wacom tablet, but I just don't find the time.

Someone posted a virtual Synaptic tablet on xen-devel recently (Xen uses qemu for VT support). If someone wants to pick it up and submit it to qemu, that would solve this problem.
