I would also like clarification on these points. I'm trying to give this
thread the benefit of the doubt, but it has an uncomfortably spammy feel,
and I don't currently see the relevance to Guacamole.

I'll be happy to stand corrected if anyone can describe why such a thing
would be an improvement over straight Guacamole, but until then I rather
feel like I'm being marketed at. The justification that it provides
additional security seems strained given that (1) you can achieve the same
with a reverse proxy and (2) requiring a VPN client to use Guacamole would
neuter the ability to connect with a browser alone.
