A lot depends on who, how and where you asked. And developer.apple.com  
is the very first site you get when googling for "mac programming" or  
"apple programming". To be honest, I also thought you already knew  
about that site, but simply did not know what exactly to look for  
there (e.g., "authorization" vs "administrator rights")..

It does not mean that your "client" can't simply enable a local VNC  
server, open a https tunnel to the server and simply tunnel VNC over  
this connection. Of course, no one can stop you from reimplementing  
everything, but it's probably going to be quite a bit of work (as such  
low level things are quite platform specific).
