What he's referring to, is that if you do 'ssh remote_machine', that
connection is encrypted. But if you there, do 'xterm -display
local_machine:0', the X connection will not be through the tunnel, as it
would if opened with 'ssh -X'. He doesn't want the overhead of the tunnel
encryption, for the X.
