At my $JOB[-1] they laughed at me when I pulled a Wyse out of the

Speaking of that sort of thing, I'd really LOVE if there were a device 
about the size of a netbook that could be hooked up to otherwise headless 
machines in colos that would give you keyboard, video & mouse.  i.e. a 
folding netbook shaped VGA monitor with USB keyboard and touchpad.  I know 
there are folding rackmount versions of this (i.e. from Dell), but I want 
something far more portable.  Twice in the past month, I'd had to drive 
100+ miles to a remote colo and took a full size flat panel monitor and 
keyboard with me.  Has anyone actually built this yet?

You might want to look at "Lilliput Computer" offerings  
<http://www.lilliputweb.net>

Add an "Adesso Flexible compact keyboard"

And you're in the 'in a briefcase, or a backpack' range, and nearly in
the 'in a coat pocket' range.  

Not _exactly_ what you asked for -- it's two pieces, not one -- but close.
