The old VNC patch uses LibVNCServer which is a derivative of the old Xvnc
codebase.  Details of why libvncserver didn't meet my goals have been
addressed in previous threads but suffice to say, I felt that starting
from scratch was necessary.

The VNC protocol does a rather poor job in defining what keycodes
correspond to what key events.  It roughly says to follow the X keysyms
but warns that many clients do weird things and does not actually document
all of those things.

Additionally, there's also translation to QEMU's keycodes.  Fortunately,
these things are easy to fix once we know what codes are being sent by the
client.  Unfortunately, I don't have an nl keyboard lying around so I need
some help figuring that out :-)
