Some applications need to be able to make a screendump at a point at which
they don't have access to an X display or can't rely on one or can't rely on
an unsupervised screendump operating correctly. An option for all these cases
is to use the xvfb X Virtual Frame Buffer in X11R6.  The X Virtual Frame
Buffer Server uses memory allocated in the process heap or even mmapped to a
file as its frame buffer.
