TigerVNC is alive and well, shipping both Xvnc standalone server and
a vnc.so loadable module for Xorg, neither of which should be broken
by this change.   It may be possible to eventually replace Xvnc with a
Xorg server that loads the vnc module with the dummy video driver and
some sort of appropriate input driver (I don't think void will cut it,
nor running without input) - but given the GPL license on that code,
I'm happiest keeping Xvnc as a completely separate binary.
