Yeah, there's something in KDE that does this already, before GNOME had it.
Perhaps it's called krfb?

Probably safer, yeah. ;-)

tsclient is just a little GUI wrapper for xvncviewer (for connecting to VNC)
and rdesktop (for connecting to MS Terminal Services). I'm sure there's
something like this for KDE.

I'm thinking about things like gst-plugins0.8-mad and stuff like that.

Actually, that reminds me - I should talk to you about arts. I've made a
package locally that doesn't depend on libmad, so we can get libmad out of
main. Not many changes, but I just want to make sure you're happy with it
before I upload.
