Auto-accept iChat screen sharing sessions

You can also just enable screen sharing in the Sharing prefs pane, and use the Screen Sharing app on your other Mac(s). Point for this idea though: having it set up like this in iChat will probably circumvent some firewall/port forwarding issues.

Only if both machines are running Leopard. They probably will be, but it's possible you'll be using a Mac that belongs to someone else, if you're traveling, and you can't count on them having the latest OSX update. Some kinds of work require a person to finish projects before taking the risk that upgrading OSX might break something important, mid-project. That's just one example.

I often use a laptop that runs Tiger, and I have no plans to upgrade it until I find I have no choice. It has some apps that would have to be upgraded, too, at considerable cost. Meanwhile, I haven't found Leopard to have any features I need badly enough to shell out a lot of money to upgrade the other programs. I rely on the laptop for certain kinds of work, and it's reliable right now, as is (except for a recent bulging battery issue covered by AppleCare).
