Title: improve nomad/xrdp to allow to attach to physical x11 session

openSUSE-11.3: Unconfirmed
Requester: Important

Requested by: Nassim Salem (nsalem)

Nomad/XRDP is a great tool that allows for high performance remote desktop to
an opensuse desktop.  The tool was first introduced in opensuse 11.1.  The tool
however lacks functionality when compared to Windows RDP.  Nomad allows us you
to create a new session on a remote desktop and then disconnect and reconnect
to that same session. It will not however connect or attach to an existing
physical X11 session on that remote machine. 

The only tools that allow one to do this are x11vnc and nx with shadow option
but both are terribly slow.  Having this capability would be awesome and would
bring it on par with what Windows users have.


Use Case:
This is an issue for users that physically work on a machine locally for
example at work and have number of long running processes and many apps open
and lock the session and go home and then want to connect to that same machine
at work from home.  Nomad will connect them to either a new session or a
different session than they have at work.
