If you're hacking on qemu-kvm and running guests without using libvirt, it'd be really nice to use virt-viewer instead of other vnc viewers which don't have e.g. "Send Ctrl-Alt-F1" etc.
Attaching a simple patch to add that
This "Send Key" functionality should be added to Vinagre instead. I don't want to complicate virt-viewer with extra codepaths for non-libvirt usage, when there is already a VNC client that is supposed to be targetted at these use cases. Going forward, virt-viewer is being re-factored to be entirely driven off libvirt event notifications and a new libvirt-gtk library, so supporting non-libvirt based usage is just not practical.
