I wouldn't call xrdp's VNC back-end a fallback.  I rather
think it's the normal mode of operation.  The RDP back-end
might not even work correctly anymore because it's not
tested as well since there is no RDP-based X server anymore.

I also question the assumption that the RDP back-end would
be faster.  Unless there are any credible benchmarks, I
would not make such assumptions.
