I think it should be noted here that user switching within one particular
session IS NOT SECURE.
Is there something we could cook up with XNest which would give both
the ability to "borrow" parts of the desktop and still allow some degree of
security to the "temporary" user? I agree that eventually this needs to be
dealt with in X either via session-persisting/hibernation, multiple
X servers, or multiple "trust" levels of X windows/connections... but in
meantime, perhaps running XNest in an environment that prevents clients of
the other server from snooping could be a workable alternative. I guess
the XNest window would have to grab the host server or something...
