Speaking of X11Forwarding... is there any particular reason that somewhere
between v2.9p2 and v2.9.9p2 there has been a change to the stock
sshd_config to disable X11Forwarding?

Also, is there any particular reason that authentication forwarding has
been disabled in 2.X (I'm not sure when, execpt that every since we've
been trying out 2.X it has been disabled by default).

In addition, if there is some reason not to use these features (bugs,
unreasonable security risks, etc.)... please let me know.
