I did have an older Glass module running with VNC at one point, mostly as a demonstration, but that was left behind when we moved to Monocle.

The structure of Monocle is such that it would not take too much to make it VNC compatible, the biggest effort actually is the input mapping. I would probably stuff it in to the "headless" support we have in there.

I don't have bandwidth to take on something like this right now, as fun as it would be.
