What impact, if any, does this have on the bandwidth required for the
VNC connection? I've been using VNC to access HVM Xen clients over a
512k link lately and it's only barely acceptable. My color level is set
to 'Low (64 Colors)'. If the client is doing the conversion then doesn't
this mean that the server has to transmit 16/24/32 bits of color
information to the client, rather than 6?

Or more likely, maybe I don't understand the implications of your patch
