This should really be filed as a bug in bugzilla instead of discussed on
desktop-devel-list as it isn't about the desktop, but a single program.

Personally I think Vino should stay as it is, and if you want to access
multiple VNC sessions from outside your router and you only have one
external IP, then configure the router with different external ports for
each machine:

port 5900 ->
port 5901 ->
port 5902 ->
