There is a footnote to that, which is that there is authentication if
both ends of the connection share an NFS-mounted home directory, and in
that case encryption probably does not matter. i.e. dbus should work in
the normal "remote X server" kind of case. Though to work really well,
ssh needs adapting to forward DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS.
