I know it, but it is not the same from the user perspective. AFAIK, it
was only developed to test Avahi.

And I thought that especially in the Unix world exist the paradigm
that everything is a file. My idea was that these services can be
represented as a special file in the network folder with an own
mime-type like application/x-vnc . And the programs tsclient or
gnome-rdp are registered for this mime-type.

That would be more Zen ;-) It can't be more simple than open the
network folder and click on the computer XY to open a vnc session.
