I guess my concern was that since my DISPLAY is :0.0, the communication
to/from xterms (or whatever I start from my window manager menus) isn't
being encrypted. When I ssh to another box and see that the DISPLAY is
foobar:1.0 (for example), I know that what I'm getting is communication
via an encrypted channel. When I see :0.0, I wonder.
