Just responded to vnc option choice off list....

1.  Not  everyone wants or needs or uses vnc
2.  To use vnc you'll need to set up a bunch of stuff for remote access

I don't use vnc...my qemu VMs are just plain clean build environments  I
don't need vnc to view the VM  on my host's monitor.  If the consensus is
that it should be enable by default, let me know.


You! What PLANET is this!
