It's great. Many thanks for this nice piece of code!

I don't know whether you already want to hear about bugs/missing
features but if so, here we go:
- command line options, at least for the server address
- is there any option menu or something like this within the VNC
session reachable?
- I connected to a Windows VNC server(UltraVNC, 1024x768) and xfvnc
seems to have problems to resize correctly, see attached screenshot
- I can resize the main window freely, shouldn't it be fixed to size of
the screen resolution of the target system?

I hope you are more often bored in future ;-).
