VNC? bleh

I could not disagree more! Having integrated VNC is an absolutely wonderful feature.

At my printing company, we run 10 different RIPs headless, using VNC to connect to them. Before our alternatives were X11 clients or CotVNC (which is so bad it is unusable). The best of our options worked so-so (modifer-click or drag didn't work on anything). We ended up using a MacPorts compile of TightVNC.

I just tried the native Leopard client, and it is wonderful. It supports screen scaling (which none of the other clients do), and the modifier clicks all work. The Network Server and Keychain integration is more than I could hope for.

Only two things I see could be improved: An option to turn off the encryption warning, and anti-aliasing when the screen is scaled.
