Apple's iChat AV in Leopard <http://www.apple.com/macosx/leopard/ 
ichat.html> has something similar to this, called "screen sharing". I  
really wish that they would speak up on this list about the protocol  
implementation. Does anyone on this list who is not under NDA with  
Apple know any of the XMPP implementation details in the new iChat AV  
for this?
