Hi Brian,  thanks for getting back!

That is perfectly fine -- even minor feedback from you on our
approach/problems, have you spotted some, could be very valuable!

I guess we have not packaged that one yet :-/  yet another TODO ;)  Is
Java viewer functioning fine with OpenJDK implementation?

hm, personally -- don't know.  looking at the packaging 1.3.2-6 we have
doesn't seems to carry this one, http://www.fltk.org/str.php?L2599,
which was not even accepted upstream... so we might indeed need to
proceed with a somewhat impaired functionality for now (if that is not
critical fixes)

my primary goal would be to get tigervnc accepted to Debian proper, i.e.
for us to address original "concerns".  And then we could beef it up ;-)
