Bear in mind that in some cases, the xpra packets may aggregate multiple 
screen updates into a bigger rectangle to reduce the processing and 
network traffic overhead.

The code is quite well separated between the network and the higher 
layers so you should be able to feed the packets to a custom client class.
There's bound to be some more thorny issues I can't think of, but 
nothing insurmountable.

Please create a ticket for this. I'm sure this could be useful, to 
reproduce bugs for example.
