ssh vs. rsh

I'm trying to convince the sysadmins at my university to install ssh and
run sshd on the main network,  but they claim it isn't much more secure
because you can avoid sending passwords by using rsh and can do x
forwarding with xrsh.

I'm really fond of ssh,  and have a few arguments I can use,  but I'm
wondering if some people out there with more knowledge in security and X
might be able to send me a few expanded summaries (or point me to a few)
that I could quote or use.

						Thanks in advance.
