Does this mean, though, that the current CVS AGTk would actually work, even
in "nearly insecure" mode? Or, that it will need to have changes applied to
make it work.

As a quick test, I've just checked out the current snapshot and the Client
doesn't "see" the Server (both started with --insecure).

Maybe anyone else with experience in AGTk insecure mode would also like to
