This is the VNC approach (render locally, forward raster data), but
done on a window-by-window basis using compositing.

As such, it suffers from most of the same problems as x11vnc
(acceleration requires local video hardware, limited by frambuffer
read speed, inter-client communication needs explicit handling, etc). 
AFAICT, the only advantage is "rootless" operation.
