Are there any projects that are working on combining some of 
the fancy new video compression codes that have become 
available with software like TightVNC?  I know SGI has a 
product for sale with low bandwidth low latency remote 
desktop capability so any OS can display a remote 
desktop/app from a highend server.  It's called Vis-server
or something along that line.  Purported to allow anyone to 
view remotely apps/data output from anywhere on anymachine. 
  I believe they are using some fancy compression scheme to 
move just enough data to show the changes on the remotely 
displayed desktop or application.  I've heard a good review 
of the software but was wondering if any project was working 
on this for Open Source.
