Are you sure about that?  A while ago I used XVNc successfully with
CodeWeavers Crossover Plugin, which uses XRENDER to render the Windows
Truetype fonts.  Crossover worked fine over XDMCP to a remote X server
that supported XRENDER, but choked and used 100% CPU to other X servers
that didn't support XRENDER.  So I think XVNc supports XRENDER.
