I'm aware of this, however, the cups/X fork is only for the server side.
On the client side there is normally an SSH fork involved, but I'm
working with the freenx people who have a patch to nxproxy so that it
doesn't need nxssh.

These ITPs are for an NX client with the above patches so that openssh
can be used rather than nxssh.
