The screen sharing feature in Leopard and in the new version of iChat already partially mitigates the need for Apple Remote Desktop in some environments, but this hack turns screen sharing into something very close to ARD by adding a bunch of additional features and controls. In other words, the screen sharing feature apparently is ARD with features stripped out – this hack lets you pop ’em back in. I can imagine this hack being disabled in the next software update….

These plist alterations have been out in the wild for a while – I think they’ve even been on macosxhints.com.
I use ARD anyway (mainly for installing software remotely), but it’s nice to have these features in ScreenSharing.
