Yes.  Some people have company policies that require them to notify users
before taking over their machines.  Popping up a dialog box takes care of
that, but in some cases you want the connection to go through if there's no
one there to bother -- if it's intended more as a matter of courtesy than of
security.

Aha.  Yes, that is a difference.  It's difficult to see why the feature is
useful.  Do people use it for administrative support stuff or something?
