That it how I found the Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) (Windows XP, 2003) to be more efficient than VNC. You could even control a remote PC from a slow ISDN (64kbit) line. Alas, it requires the server to be a Windows machine, so it is not suitable to everyone.
Does anyone know if there is the possiblitiy to do X Windows forwarding via ssh on a handheld? Zaurus handhelds perhaps?
