 one last comment.. Some apps you can manually install in your own (non-root) 
home directory (~/bin).  If you're allowed to do this, you can also run your 
own copy of VNC (on non-priv ports) and possibly do what you need.  You will 
just need to spawn the binary such that it and your X-session will not 
terminate (you don't log out of them).

Flag me of list if you want to chat about it.
