Description of problem:
virt-viewer in RHEL 7 is at version 2.0 and carries out 100+ including fixes and features making it a very different software than the original, while upstream is already at version 5.0 and already includes those patches.
There are other new features planned for RHEL 7.4, and if we choose not to rebase virt-viewer, we can easily go 130+ patches for the application, making the maintenance burden a bit too heavy.
As other components of the stack, including SPICE and Gtk+, are set up for rebase in RHEL 7.4, it would be a good chance to also rebase the application virt-viewer and update the library dependency requirements without any impact.
It is already possible to test the latest upstream release of virt-viewer in rhel7 thanks to SPICE nightly copr repo https://copr.fedorainfracloud.org/coprs/g/spice/nightly/

Comment folder sharing menus
Do not display folder sharing menu items, because it is not available in el7 client (requires spice-gtk to be built with the webdav support).

I am thinking about removing those lines instead of commenting out, it looks cleaner to me. Please take a look at the patch attached.

up to you - fine with me (I haven't tested).
The only issue I can think of may be related to conflicts due to backporting some patches in future
virt-viewer functions have been verified and no critical issues in rhel7.4.
So move the bug to VERIFIED.
