--- Comment #15 from Damien Miller <djm at mindrot.org> ---
dtucker made this observation:

> this will make it much harder to use an X display from anywhere else

> "DISPLAY=:10.0 some_installer" on the console and it'll pick
> up the cookie from ~/.Xauthority and probably work, or at least be no
> more broken than usual.
> I'm not sure if that's a down side or not but it's certainly a change
> in behaviour.
