Exactly so--I'm interested in communication between local systems used
by myself.  No need for security.  In fact, most of my systems don't use
passwords for login.  Why?  When I'm the only one using them, demanding
the use of passwords and encryption is pure insanity.

I have enough of a problem remembering the host names of the various boxes.

I might as well install cipher locks on all the interior doors of my
house.  It wouldn't make me one bit more secure--just frustrated with
the useless effort.
