This patch enables the vnc server to understand the tight protocol.

Basically, negotiation if tight is existing happens through the
authentication code. If a special authentication called VNC_AUTH_TIGHT
is used, the real authentication is stacked afterwards and tight
extensions exist.

This is wrong. The way the standard works is that the client advertises the Tight encoding via SetEncodingTypes. That's all that should be needed. The VNC_AUTH_TIGHT thing is a Tight extension that shouldn't be needed for implementing tight encoding.
