# todo

- support color maps?  only true color (varying depths) is supported now.
- show smaller cursor (mouse pointer) when over vnc fb and drawing local mouse
- use factotum for auth
- fix zrle encoding (may be due to inflate, it needs to flush output before asking new input, the stream never terminates)
- better x11 keysym translation
- get control/shift/alt/function etc keys.  from tk or use a different approach.
- find utf-8/unicode extensions for copy/paste text from/to remote.  it's all latin1 now.
