Description Ed Bailey 2000-12-08 17:38:19 UTC
The Xclients file should include a test to exec the appropriate session
manager under ssh-agent, if ssh-agent is present.  This would make the use
of ssh (with passphrases remembered for each session) easier.

(Note: I'm posting a similar enhancement request for switchdesk, as its
Xclients files should also be modified, for consistency's sake...)
