Virtual secondary screen on another screen

Just sharing a neat combination:

x0vncserver running on a secondary machine (which is beside my main laptop).
x2vnc running on my laptop.

The second screen is then accessible by scrolling my mouse off to the
right of my main desktop, just as if I had an extended desktop with
two monitors connected to the same machine (of course things run
separately on machine two).

Anyhow, just thought I'd share as it's quite a bit more useful in some
cases than regular VNC or X-over-SSH (such as not taking up extra
space with a  X/VNC window on my *main* desktop).
