dcommander turbovncserver.conf: Allow specifying Xvnc args
It still makes sense to use turbovncserver.conf to specify variables
that have special meanings in vncserver, but this is a much more
extensible mechanism than allocating new turbovncserver.conf variables
(such as $autoLosslessRefresh, $pamSession, $multiThread, and
$numThreads) that do nothing other than instruct vncserver to pass
arguments to Xvnc.

About TurboVNC
==============

Virtual Network Computing (VNC) is a remote display system that allows you to
view and interact with a desktop environment that is running on a remote
computer.  Using VNC, you can run graphical applications on a remote machine
and send only the pixels generated by those applications to your local machine.
VNC is platform-independent and supports a wide variety of operating systems
and architectures as both servers and clients.

TurboVNC is a high-speed version of VNC derived from TightVNC.  It contains
a variant of Tight encoding that is tuned to maximize performance for image-
intensive applications (such as VirtualGL, video applications, and image
editors) while still providing excellent performance for other types of
applications.  TurboVNC, in combination with VirtualGL, provides a complete
solution for remotely displaying 3D applications with interactive performance.

Refer to the TurboVNC User's Guide and man pages for a more thorough
description of the components that make up TurboVNC.
