Description of problem:
It is a very good idea to allow users to pass parameters to vncserver in
/etc/sysconfig/vncserver for different displays.  For example I wish to set
different depth and geometry for my displays.

One way to do this is to parse the file instead of sourcing it and on each line
there are the username, display name, and server options.

I can solve my problem by aliasing vncserver in /etc/sysconfig/vncserver.

Better would be if that the vncserver itself reads some config from $HOME/.vnc too.
