Description of problem:
RFE: Usage of VNC to control a remote graphical install

As forwarding the display of the graphical remote install is subject to 
disconnects, I would like to request that it be made available to use VNC to 
control a remote install.  That way if there are any disconnects during a 
remote graphical install, one can reconnect without any loss of install time.  
Also one would be able to shut down their desktop for the night when performing 
an overnight install on another system controlling it with the remote graphical 
install method.

Thanks for the suggestion we'll consider this for a future release.

I think that we're more likely to work on exporting the X display however, as
testing something based on VNC is more than I think we want to pull into our
development cycle.
