 * Protocol Version
 *
 * The server always sends 12 bytes to start which identifies the latest RFB
 * protocol version number which it supports.  These bytes are interpreted
 * as a string of 12 ASCII characters in the format "RFB xxx.yyy\n" where
 * xxx and yyy are the major and minor version numbers (for version 3.3
 * this is "RFB 003.003\n").
 *
 * The client then replies with a similar 12-byte message giving the version
 * number of the protocol which should actually be used (which may be different
 * to that quoted by the server).
 *
 * It is intended that both clients and servers may provide some level of
 * backwards compatibility by this mechanism.  Servers in particular should
 * attempt to provide backwards compatibility, and even forwards compatibility
 * to some extent.  For example if a client demands version 3.1 of the
 * protocol, a 3.0 server can probably assume that by ignoring requests for
 * encoding types it doesn't understand, everything will still work OK.  This
 * will probably not be the case for changes in the major version number.
 *
 * The format string below can be used in sprintf or sscanf to generate or
 * decode the version string respectively.

 *

 * are the width and height of the tile).  Otherwise the tile is encoded in a

 *
 * ForegroundSpecified - if set, a pixel value follows which specifies
 *    the foreground colour to be used for all subrectangles in this tile.
 *    If this bit is set then the SubrectsColoured bit must be zero.
 *
 * AnySubrects - if set, a single byte follows giving the number of
 *    subrectangles following.  If not set, there are no subrectangles (i.e.
 *    the whole tile is just solid background colour).
 *
 * SubrectsColoured - if set then each subrectangle is preceded by a pixel
 *    value giving the colour of that subrectangle.  If not set, all
 *    subrectangles are the same colour, the foreground colour;  if the
 *    ForegroundSpecified bit wasn't set then the foreground is the same as
 *    the last tile.
 *
 * The position and size of each subrectangle is specified in two bytes.  The
 * Pack macros below can be used to generate the two bytes from x, y, w, h,
 * and the Extract macros can be used to extract the x, y, w, h values from
 * the two bytes.
