Add listen mode, so that a VNC server can initiate a reverse connection with vncconnect.

This is helpful when the server is behind a firewall and does not have
access to open ports on said firewall.

Although none of the OS X VNC servers seemed to have ported the vncconnect function, this would be a good start...

    It looks like OSXVnc v. 1.5 has added command-line support for reverse
    connections.

    -connectHost host Host Name or IP of listening client to establishing a
    reverse conneect
    -connectPort port TCP port of listening client to establishing a reverse
    conneect
