Mine is here:

but as I said before it's missing lots of files for the bit.
I'd imagine Stefan's more complete than the xf4vnc stuff (unless Alan
has deliberatly removed the libvnc stuff (partially for some reason?)
and thus both our patches too.

Stefan did you just migrate the patch we've both been using from
previous Xorg releases? It seems to be more complete in terms of the
libvnc files from what I can tell but haven't had much time to play yet
to update it (and there is little point if you've done it already :p)
