Yes. But other similar interfaces/protocols could be possible, which 
can do it (of course much slower). It should be the job of the client
library to negotiate with the server, which protocol is the best.

If they agree to be on the same host, then they can use DRI and perhaps
the server will fixup some permissions to let the client in. Sometimes
it may be not wanted that is allowed (i.e. from another local user),
so we define it in an ACL (does xauth allow such things ?)
