Feature #1209: Single VNC proxy for all connections

Taking advantage of latest developments contributed to websockify, we can now make use of multiples targets validated by a system of file-based tokens.

The stopvnc actions dissapear as we only have to close the connection. The proxy is launched at the start of Sunstone and shutdown and the end. The tokens which allow to set up the proxied connections expire after 4 seconds.

Necessary modifications have been made in Sunstone and SelfService. novnc install script has been modified to fetch the websockify proxy files from the original project. Also, only the strictly necessary files for novnc+websockify to run are now installed.
