If you get the basic auth working correctly with RFB protocol 3.3,
IMHO, that will be sufficient for an initial commit to xen-unstable
because it is such a step forward over the current 'no auth'
situation. We can consider extending it to cover protocol 3.8
at a later date when we decide which other auth meachanisms
are particularly important.

Its been on 3.8 for a while & clients will negotiate a mutually
supported protocol version with the server, so no need to worry
about future protocol versions at this time.
