Python based VNC client in browser

What I really like in open source is when people reuse existing stuff to bring up something new. Today Arkaitz Jimenez brought up a way to connect to VNC server with browser using hybrid solution from Python, JavaScript, gevent and WebSockets.

The exciting thing that this project uses patched version of python-vnc-viewer written by Chris Liechti that I've uploaded to Google Code, because it had to be updated to work with modern versions of required libraries. It is nice to see this effort brought up something cool today.
