Default App: remmina and vino

remmina was recently removed from the soon-to-be-released Debian 9
"Stretch". [1]

Frankly, remmina has not been that well-maintained recently. See the Debian bug.

remmina is a remote desktop client to view shared remote desktops
using vnc, rdp (used by Windows) and other protocols. vino allows you
to share your desktop remotely using vnc.

GNOME on Wayland does not currently support remote desktop sharing.
The GNOME developers would like to have a remote desktop replacement
(similar to how Night Light provided redshift-like features on GNOME
on Wayland) but I don't think that's gotten very far yet. [2] When it
is implemented, it will be done "natively" so it won't need vino.
