VNC without "viewer" or a virtual Xorg Display

Hi there.

I want to be able to control an other machine by vnc but I do not need to see it's screen on the vncviewer desktop. I just need somekind of multihead screen.

I though of a "virtual X Display" so I could put if left-of/right-of (with xrandr) someother and run in there lets say vinagre.

Is there any clever way to do this?

I think what you are looking for would be synergy.
