its not up to citrix, as to what makes it into cloudstack, so I'm not sure
why cloudstack wouldnt include it... esp if someone implemented it AND it
were accepted by the community. I'd personally like to see this solution in
cloudstack, users can enable it or the console proxy... or both! it has the
potential to provide a richer desktop experience than the console proxy
(sorry Kelven :p ).

What i wonder is how one manages and secures the access.
