But what if it is VNC?  I misspoke a bit before.  After the initial connection
setup messages are exchanged in VNC, each further message is mostly self
contained and can be interpreted properly.  Some cases where it can't are when
certain values are used from the connection setup like the pixel depth and that
can throw off the dissection accuracy, although it's still better than nothing
