novnc provide:
- a html5 client application (js+html+css) that use websocket
protocol to encapsulate vnc protocol
- a python library to quickly build a websocket server for novnc
- 2 websocket servers:
  * a simple one: proxy one vnc tcp connection to vnc websocket
  * a openstack one: that retreive from nova, vnc parameters of the vms (ip,
    port, auth, ...) and proxy websocket connection to their
- a some other optional small tools 

The openstack websocket server is the one needed by horizon

For more comprehension, I will split all of this and rename the init script of the package
from /etc/init.d/novnc to /etc/init.d/nova-novncproxy
