Adam, is rdesktop still under active development? It seems that there
are hundreds of bugs and proposed patches at their SF page.
Since MS's terminal server client (mstsc) crashes on keypress in Wine,
rdesktop is still the only option for a lot of us, but there are so many
visual bugs that it's almost unusable... (simple example: radio buttons
aren't drawn correctly, so you can't see which one is selected, max 256
Getting back on topic: if a tool or programs is going to be included, it
should have an active upstream and not too many open bugs...
