No problem. All we expect from new contributors is making an effort to
get their patches right. Actually getting them 100% right from the
start isn't really in the cards :)

The default depends on configuration options. Ideally, --help output
would show the defaults for this build's configuration.
If we decide users need more information than the current "VNC server
