The short-and-probably-inadequate explanation is that untrusted
can only interact/mess with other untrusted clients, the idea being that
you have clients which might misbehave, and those that you trust to not.
What I can guess, rightly or wrongly, is another story. :-) I just
pointed out that the current documentation for 'ssh' is somewhat, ah,
inadequte and even a bit misleading. An explicit reference to other
sources you quote would undoubtely help; as also a word or two about
'-Y' in a subsection entitled "X11 and TCP forwarding". I am also
not sure if I see right away an example when '-X' option would
be really useful with this version of ssh. Maybe I do not have
a setup where I can see that?
