X also has other, presumably faster, means of communicating with local
clients. I think it can use both Unix sockets and shared memory. If you give
"-nolisten tcp" on the command line to Xfree86 or XVNC, it won't accept
connections from clients on other machines but still work just fine with
local clients. With "-nolisten local" it only listens on TCP, so even local
clients have to make the detour over the networking subsystem.
